See a different side of Nashville with this eye-opening Nashville Slavery to Freedom Walking Tour. Join a guided, 1 hour stroll through Music City where you'll hear stories of noteworthy Nashville slaves and their remarkable achievements.

Increase your awareness on this thought-provoking look into Nashville's journey from slavery to freedom.
