Voices from the Front Lines | Panel Discussion w/ Local Civil Rights Movement Participants

Voices from the Front Lines A panel discussion with participants in the local civil rights movement, moderated by historian Linda Wynn.

Hear the stories behind the photographs of We Shall Overcome: Civil Rights and the Nashville Press, 1957–1968, and take a deeper look at the civil rights movement. Moderated by Linda Wynn, this panel will feature first-person accounts by individuals who fought for racial equity in Nashville.

Image: Demonstrators sing in front of the Nashville Police Department on August 7, 1961, as they protest what they called police brutality in a racial clash two nights earlier. They criticized “inadequate” police protection and called for qualified black personnel to “replace incompetent officers on the police force.” Photo by Eldred Reaney, with permission from The Tennessean.
