Dr. King’s role as a leader in the Civil Rights Movement and the influence he had on Nashville’s activism makes this long-standing event a national treasure. Dr. King came to Nashville and spoke on several occasions, but it was the organized effort of student leaders from historically black colleges and universities in Music City that inspired him. Dr. King’s now famous quote, “I came to Nashville not to bring inspiration, but to gain inspiration from the great movement that has taken place in this community…” came from his visit. Nashvillians have stood strong for civil rights since the beginning and through leadership, strength and determination to end segregation at the diner counters to the role that Nashville plays today.
