About this event

Join Tennessee State University’s College of Liberal Arts and the Metropolitan Historical Commission for the 42nd Annual Nashville Conference on African American History and Culture (NCAAHC), a dynamic celebration of the contributions of African Americans to Nashville and Tennessee history. For four decades, this award-winning conference has brought together historians, students, educators, community leaders and others interested in African American history and culture. 

This year's conference will be a virtually-held event and is packed with many new presenters, engaging sessions, and talented entertainers. Our theme this year is “Tell it Like It Is: Exploring African American Public, Oral, and Written History in Tennessee.” Speakers include Tennessee Historical Commission's Assistant Director for State Programs, Mrs. Linda Wynn.

For more information about the conference, including archives and speaker bios, visit www.NCAAHC.org.


Attendees will enjoy thoughtful sessions from distinguished Tennessee historians, researchers, and authors and will be treated to entertainment from the TSU Meistersingers chamber choir and a theatrical performance from the Fisk University Stagecrafters. The $20 registration fee covers access to the half-day online event and helps ensure that the conference continues for future generations. Registration is now open. We hope you will join us in celebration of the 42nd annual Nashville Conference on African American History and Culture!
