The materials exhibited here capture a time when thousands of African American citizens in Nashville sparked a nonviolent challenge to racial segregation in the city and across the South. Not only does the room archive stories with oral histories and firsthand photographs, but also provides a current voice and venue for open dialogue and discovery. Visitors are invited to schedule a guided experience of the space or enjoy a self-led tour.
