Visiting Fisk

At the end of June/beginning of July, I was on vacation and my family and I did various things around Nashville – one of those items being a trip to Fisk University.  My husband wanted the kids to see the HBCU campus and we talked throughout the day about the importance of education.  I found the trip very rewarding, for it has helped solidify my interest in blacks in Nashville and helped me further appreciate the rich history here in town.  I blogged about our trip on my main blog.

It was neat to walk the campus and hear the history, and hear many names that I’ve learned of through my activity on this blog.  For example,  now that I’ve seen and been inside the Fisk Memorial Chapel and learned of it’s history, it makes it easier to place stories like the report on the Merchant of Venice production in a more real setting.

I hope to continue to learn even more as I continue this project.
