2020 Mid-Year Update & New Sponsors

We have two more sponsors for the Clarksville Montgomery County African-American Legacy Trail! Thank you to Melissa Lowe, Montgomery County Diversity Training Officer, and to Dan Rachlin for your commitment to preserving African American history and culture within Clarksville and Montgomery County.

We are always grateful to our sponsors for keeping the trail alive. ALL of the donations go toward the cost of printing the brochures that are located around Clarksville/Montgomery County. Some locations where you can find the brochures are Burt-Cobb Recreation Center, the Customs House Museum and Cultural Center, the Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center at APSU, HUDUBAM Books on Franklin St., Ft. Defiance Civil War Park and Interpretive Center, and many more locations around town.

Let’s review our three goals for 2020. First, we are adding three locations to the online version of the trail on the Montgomery County website and working on adding those to the design of the brochure in the future. Since the brochure is designed through Rossview High School’s Academy of Media Arts and Technology, we will have to wait on the redesign until school resumes. CMCSS is currently closed due to the pandemic. We will update you as information becomes available.

The three new sites honor three important people: Pastor Jimmy Terry, CSM Sidney Brown, and Wilma Rudolph. You can read about the locations on the previous blog posts here and here and here.

Our second goal this year is to raise enough funds to move to the next stage in printing the brochure; printing 10,000+ brochures will give us enough to reach the third goal, and that is to make them available in the Tennessee State Welcome and Visitors Centers located along the interstates as you enter Tennessee. We will keep you up to date on our progress toward that goal and post more information about it as soon as it becomes available.
