Black History Month Toolkit
The staff of The Hermitage are beginning an ongoing project to compile resources and materials that will enable the community to research and better understand the history of enslaved and emancipated African-Americans in the Nashville area. This collection will be an ongoing work-in-progress, which we hope to expand every year by adding new resources and other materials from our partner sites in the region. You can either download the full toolkit below or click each image or document.
