Nashville Conference on African-American History and Culture

Just a quick post to share the news of an event I just learned about today.  On February 8th, the Tennessee Historical Commission is sponsoring a day-program at Tennessee State University to celebrate the contributions of African-Americans to Nashville and the state of Tennessee.  The event is the Nashville Conference on African-American History and Culture and more details can be viewed at their website.

The Tennessee Historical Commission has long been interested in African-American history and culture.  The notable, Profiles of African Americans in Tennessee collection was created out of the groups’ research efforts.  I regularly consult the Profiles book for information relevant to African-American history in the state – it’s a great resource! I unfortunately will not be able to attend the conference, but it looks like a great event.
