Celebrate women in Nashville during Women's History Month!

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — March is women's history month!

Nashville has a long history of women making history, and there are lots of ways in the city to see it memorialized.

There are also several events this month in celebration of what women are doing in the city of Nashville now.

WOMEN IN TENNESSEE HISTORY

Nashville Public Library

There is a longstanding room in the Nashville Public Library that celebrates women's accomplishments: The Votes for Women Room!

This exhibit was created in honor of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, which gave women the right to vote in 1920.

Another great place to learn about some of the women who have impacted Tennessee's history is the Tennessee State Museum.

Forging a Nation Gallery

  • Martha Clingnan, a Cherokee Farmer
  • Sarah Childress Polk, First Lady
  • Jenny Blow Washington, enslaved woman from Robertson County

Civil War and Reconstruction Gallery

Change and Challenge Gallery

  • Women's suffrage banner
  • Roles Tennesseeans played in the 19th amendment ratification

Tennessee Transforms Gallery

  • changing lives of women from 1945 until now — Dolly Parton, Tina Turner, NASA astronaut Dr. Margaret Rhea Seddon

If you don't want to find all the exhibits on your own, the Museum is also offering Women's History Month tours weekly on Saturday from 2:00 to 2:45 p.m. until March 27.

The cast of ‘A Different World’ launch HBCU tour to fund scholarships and boost enrollment

After 35 years, the cast of “A Different World” has reunited on a tour of historically Black colleges and universities to promote enrollment and raise scholarship funding for current and future students.

“A Different World” was a spin-off of “The Cosby Show” that followed Denise Huxtable’s character, played by Lisa Bonet, as she attended Hillman College, a fictional HBCU in Virginia.

The “A Different World HBCU College Tour 2024” kicked off Thursday at the Atlanta University Center as the cast visited Spelman College, Clark Atlanta University and Morehouse College.

Cast members on the tour include Jasmine Guy, Kadeem Hardison, Dawnn Lewis, Glynn Turman, Cree Summer, Charnele Brown and Darryl Bell.

Bell, who played Ron Johnson on the sitcom, helped organize the tour. He told CNN he sees the campus visits as an opportunity to honor the legacy of the show and introduce a new generation to HBCUs.

“Not a day goes by, for all of us who were involved with the show, where someone doesn’t come up to us and say, ‘I went to an HBCU because I watched ‘A Different World,’” Bell said.

Bell told CNN it’s important for young Black students to consider attending HBCUs because they will not only get a great education, but there’s also a special sense of family.

“HBCUs have produced some of our greatest leaders, greatest minds and greatest thinkers,” Bell said, adding that at HBCUs “there’s an investment that is much more personal.”

Democratic lawmakers call on Governor Lee to release business tax returns ahead of tax policy proposal

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Democratic lawmakers will hold a press conference today to call on Governor Bill Lee to disclose his business tax returns and other business ventures.

The press conference will take place just a day before the governor's proposed $5.7 billion tax break and refund bill is considered for its first vote in the senate.

Democratic lawmakers say they believe Tennesseans should have transparency in whether the governor will financially benefit from what they say would be the largest tax handout in TN history.

“Gov. Lee is attempting to sneak through the legislature one of the largest corporate tax breaks in modern history by misrepresenting it as a legal necessity,” said House Democratic Caucus Chairman John Ray Clemmons. “The least he could do is be honest about whether he and his own company stand to financially benefit from the legislation.”

Senate Democratic Caucus Chairwoman Sen. London Lamar, who also signed the letter, said this corporate welfare will further delay investments needed for Tennessee’s families and weaken the public’s faith in government.

“Transparency is key if we want people to trust the decisions being made at the Capitol,” said Lamar. “The people I represent say we should be investing in working families and our economy — not tax breaks for big corporations.”

So far Governor Lee has not responded to the letter.

Sen. Jeff Yarbro and Rep. John Ray Clemmons will hold a press conference Monday and introduce a new senate bill. The bill would pre-empt any legal challenge, preserve corporate tax collections for future investments in families, and provide a dollar-for-dollar credit for any company that proves legitimate double-taxation.

The press conference will take place at Cordell Hull in the first-floor press room. It's scheduled for 11:30 a.m

No twerking. No drinking. No smoking. But it’s still a party at this Nashville Christian nightclub

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The young crowd at a Nashville nightclub was ready to dance under the strobe lights to a throbbing mix of hip-hop, rap and Latin beats. But first they gathered to pray and praise God.

The rules were announced on the dance floor by a mic-carrying emcee to more than 200 clubgoers blanketed by thick smoke machine fog: ”Rule No. 1: No twerking. Second rule: No drinking. And a third rule: No smoking.” The last unspoken rule seemed obvious by then: No secular music — the playlist would be all Christian.

Welcome to The Cove.

The pop-up, 18-and-up Christian nightclub was launched last year by seven Black Christian men in their 20s — among them an Ivy League-educated financial analyst, musicians and social media experts — who sought to build a thriving community and a welcoming space for young Christians outside houses of worship. The launch comes at a post-pandemic time of dwindling church attendance, especially among Black Protestants that surveys say is unmatched by any other major religious group.

“We ourselves experienced a pain point of not being able to find community outside of our church, not knowing what to do to have fun without feeling bad for doing stuff that’s conflicting to our values,” said Eric Diggs, The Cove’s 24-year-old CEO.

“There wasn’t a space to cultivate that. So, we created it ourselves out of that pain point — the loneliness, the anxiety, depression, COVID, and the long quarantine.

Wilhoite Retains Position with Primary Win for Property Assessor

Nashville, Tenn. (TN Tribune)-Vivian Wilhoite, the incumbent Davidson County Assessor of Property, secured a commanding victory in the Democratic primary for her position on Tuesday night, outpacing her opponent by nearly a two-to-one ratio.

With no Republican contenders stepping forward for the August countywide general election, Wilhoite is anticipated to easily claim victory in the race for the office.

Wilhoite is the city’s first African American Assessor of Property and Tennessee’s third African American Assessor of Property in the state’s history. As the Assessor of Property, Wilhoite and her staff are responsible for the valuation of all taxable residential and commercial properties in Davidson County. She also served two terms on the Nashville Metro City Council from 2003-2011, representing Southeast District 29.

Wilhoite, a native of Gulfport, Mississippi, graduated from Tennessee State University.

Stephanie Williams Secures Win in Decisive Judge Primary Victory

Nashville, Tenn. (TN Tribune)-In a commanding victory, Stephanie Williams emerged as the Democratic nominee for the Nashville Fourth Circuit Court judge seat on Tuesday, securing almost twice as many votes as her combined opponents.

The triumph positions her favorably for the upcoming general election in August, where she faces no opposition from Republican candidates, essentially paving her way to the bench.

Four candidates were seeking for the Democratic nomination. They were Williams, the court’s former special master; incumbent Stan Kweller, who has held the job since 2023; Audrey Anderson, a family law attorney; and Tusca Alexis, a family law mediator. The Davidson County Fourth Circuit Court is one of Nashville’s two family courts. It handles a high volume of some of Davidson County’s most emotional court cases, including divorces, custody battles, child support and adoptions. Between Nashville’s two family courts in the third and fourth circuits, 1,706 new divorce cases were filed in 2023.

Over the past 20 years, Williams has participated as a litigant, lawyer, mediator, and judicial officer in family court.  As a single mother, Williams worked, attended school at night and commuted between Nashville and Knoxville to obtain her law degree. In her 12 years of private practice, she represented hundreds of litigants at reduced rates, who may otherwise have been unable to afford a lawyer.  More recently, Williams served for nearly 9 years in a judicial capacity in Fourth Circuit Court under the late Judge Philip E. Smith.  For more than 15 years, she has dedicated herself to causes in the community, many of which she initiated, that support, uplift, and empower children and families.

Gospel Music Museum to join the list of museums celebrating music in Music City

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Another museum celebrating music will be joining Music City in the near future.

A Gospel Music Museum and the future Dove Center for the Gospel Music Association will be built on the corner of Fourth Avenue and Commerce Street.

Besides being Music City, it makes sense for the museum to be built right here in Nashville. Gospel music history is continuously being made here. There is more than 150 years of gospel music history from the Fisk Jubilee Singers. Then we have Tennessee State University's Aristocrat of Bands being the first Band to win a Grammy for collaborating on a Gospel album just last year.

Russell Wilson has agreed to sign a 1-year deal with the Steelers, AP source says

(AP) - Russell Wilson is heading to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback has agreed to sign a one-year deal with the Steelers, a person familiar with the details told The Associated Press on Sunday night.

The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because the contract hasn’t been finalized, said Wilson will receive the veteran’s minimum of $1.21 million while the Denver Broncos pay the remainder of his $39 million salary.

Wilson posted his intentions on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, saying: “Year 13. Grateful. @Steelers.”

The 35-year-old Wilson was 11-19 in two seasons with the Broncos after being acquired in a trade from Seattle. He bounced back from a dreadful 2022 season and threw 3,070 yards, 26 touchdowns and only eight interceptions, but still lost his job to Jarrett Stidham after going 7-8 in coach Sean Payton’s first season last year.

Wilson led Seattle to eight playoff appearances and a Super Bowl title in 10 seasons with the Seahawks.

The Steelers lost a wild-card playoff game with Mason Rudolph as their starting quarterback. Rudolph went 3-0 after replacing Kenny Pickett, who was 7-5 before going down with an injury. Mitch Trubisky started the other two games and went 0-2.

Pittsburgh is scheduled to play the Broncos in Denver this upcoming season — and the game could feature a return by Wilson. The NFL is expected to release its league schedule in May.
