We Shall Overcome
Frist Center for the Visual Arts
919 Broadway | Get Directions
Frist Center for the Visual Arts presents We Shall Overcome: Civil Rights and the Nashville Press, 1957-1968. Fifty years after Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination—and at a time when race relations and human rights are again at the forefront of our country’s political and social consciousness—the Frist Center will present a selection of approximately 50 photographs that document an important period in Nashville’s struggle for racial equality. The images were taken between 1957, the year that desegregation began in public schools, and 1968, when Dr. King was killed in Memphis. The exhibit will be on display from March 30 to October 7 in the Conte Community Arts Gallery. Tickets are included with general admission.
March, 30 @ 10:00 am
