For years, the Civil Rights Room at the Nashville Public Library has served as a center for engagement and community dialogue. With the opening of the Votes for Women Room in August, the library will commemorate another movement of historical significance and contemporary relevance. Julius will talk with Nashville Public Library Executive Director Kent Oliver and Andrea Blackman, Director of the Civil Rights and Votes for Women Rooms, about how these spaces bring members of the community together to learn about the past, confront the present, and envision a better future. The visit will include sneak peek at the soon-to-be unveiled Votes for Women Room.
