Black History Month
Nashville's calendar in February (and January) is filled with events celebrating Black History Month. From art exhibits to musical performances, Music City is honoring the contributions of African-Americans to our society.
In 2017, Nashville celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Black History Month throughout the city. We joined hundreds for the annual Nashville MLK Day march, learned about the enslaved community at Andrew Jackson's Hermitage, heard from multiple scholars at local universities, and more. Stay tuned for 2018 events and dates.
Discover the Past
Besides just the month of February, Music City honors women and men throughout the year that have contributed not only to Nashville's history, but the country's history. From the Fisk Jubilee Singers to the Civil War through the Nashville sit-ins and the music of Jimi Hendrix, Little Richard, Ray Charles, Etta James, and so many others, the past has built the present and continues to form the future. It is all here and waiting to be discovered year round. It is all here and waiting to be discovered year round. Explore more of multicultural Nashville.
