What you'll learn in this historical class:

This downtown Nashville tour will take you on an experience of what life was like for the early black Nashvillians from 1779 to 1960. Go beyond the tourist traps and truly complete your perspective of the Music City. 

What We’ll Do

Together we will trace the footsteps of African Americans in Nashville who was among the earliest settlers. As we explore historic sites and attractions, you’ll discover the significant role that black people played in the growth and development of the Music City, including business, politics, and music. The purpose of this tour is to celebrate black history by sharing inspirational stories that increase awareness. Join this guided African American History tour in downtown Nashville to help us preserve the stories of men, women, and children who shaped our city from its beginning.

Among the many stories highlighted on the tour are:

  • The enslaved man who has a plaque dedicated to him near the Courthouse
  • The slave who lived near Public Square and purchased freedom for her son
  • A black man who started his career as a janitor in a law office and became a lawyer 
  • The entrepreneur who was granted his liquor license and started a bar as a slave
  • The enslaved doctor who created natural remedies to heal people in the community
  • The black architects who started the longest-running firm worth millions today 
  • The free Black woman who opened a sweets shop in the 1800s

This tour will continue rain or shine.
