Join us for the Dedication of Diane Nash Plaza: A Celebration of Courage and Conviction” event on Saturday, April 20, 2024. This event will honor, Civil Rights Leader, Diane Nash, who played a pivotal role as an activist, leader, and strategist in the student wing of the Civil Rights Movement.

When Nash asked Nashville’s mayor, Ben West, on the steps of City Hall, “Do you feel it is wrong to discriminate against a person solely based on their race or color?” the mayor admitted that he did. Three weeks later, the lunch counters of Nashville were serving blacks. Diane Nash posing this question led to the desegregation of lunch counters and changed history during the Civil Rights Movement.
