Historic Black Nashville

Archives_1Historic Black Nashville (UNIV/HIST 2655 & UNIV/HIST 5655) explores the under-developed history of black Nashville from settlement to the early twentieth century.  Through instructor and guest lectures, digital humanities instruction, site visits, and independent research in local archives, students in this multicultural university course will recover and document the lives of the city’s enslaved and free people of color as well as the community institutions and social and artistic movements that defined the black experience in Nashville, As students gain substantive expertise, they will also learn research methods and multiple media and technologies for telling historical narratives.
