Nashville Peace Calendar
This calendar, privately run by Eric Schechter, is not officially affiliated with NPJC E-blast, despite overlap in content and staff.
http://NashvilleCalendar.org -- bringing together the local activist community since 2006. To see an event's details, click on its underline. Please REPORT any inaccuracies. COLORS explained at the bottom of this page. TO POST an event, see instructions page.

February is African-American History Month. There are too many history events for me to list them all on the calendar, but you can find some of them at the library, Vanderbilt, public television, and elsewhere.
