Tour Fort Negley

The Fort Negley walking tour centers the African American history of the fort, and the tour shares this complex history by integrating the narratives of descendants of the black laborers and defenders at Fort Negley. In partnership with Nashville Sites, a nonprofit that creates free historic walking tours funded by the Metro Historical Commission Foundation, the Fort Negley tour was co-written by the FNDP's own Juliet Larkin-Gilmore and Destiny Hanks. The tour shares the complex history surrounding Fort Negley as well as the significance the site holds to the surrounding black neighborhoods, historians, and Nashvillians.
