Video Resources for Learning about Tennessee and Williamson County's African American History

During this uncertain time with everyone #SocialDistancing and staying inside, I thought it might be helpful to assemble some videos about Tennessee and Williamson County's rich African American history.  Some of you may be parents with children at home, or might be adults looking for a distraction from the alarming news of the day.

I hope you find these videos to be interesting, and perhaps in some ways inspiring.  Humans have endured difficult times before, and will again.
