Tennessee State University Professor Partners with Apple for new Civil Rights History Centered App


Reading Time: < 1 minute

Tennessee State University history professor, Dr. Learotha Williams has been working closely with Apple to create a new app that highlights the Civil Rights history of North Nashville and the role that Tennessee State University played in it.

The app somewhat functions as an extension of previous projects Williams worked on, including a virtual walking tour of Tennessee State University featured on Nashvillesites.org and a project titled North Nashville Heritage Project, which is a project that seeks to encourage a greater understanding of the history of North Nashville. Williams hopes that the app and it’s conjunction with Tennessee State University will serve as a trailblazer for other HBCUs with historical ties to the neighborhood in which it was founded.
