Nashville Conference on African-American History and Culture
Please note, this event has expired.
Tennessee State University’s College of Liberal Arts and the Metropolitan Historical Commission will celebrate the contributions of African Americans to Nashville and Tennessee history. For thirty-five years, this award-winning conference has brought together historians, students, educators, community leaders, and others interested in African American history and culture.
This year’s conference will examine Nashville’s challenges of integration through inspiring presentations from local scholars with Volunteer State, Vanderbilt, Fisk, and TSU, as well as professors from Columbia University and Union College. As always, music will be a highlight of the conference, with a presentation on two Memphis jazz greats, and performances by the TSU Jazz Collegians and Angela Yvonne Stockdale. Tennessee History Day students will present their award-winning documentaries on African-American history in Tennessee.
Please plan to join us for this very special Nashville Conference on African American History and Culture as we use songs and stories to explore Nashville’s past, present, and future.
$25/Ticket; and include all speakers, musical events, lunch, and parking.
