After being postponed for over two years, we are working on adding more people and places to the Clarksville Montgomery County African American Legacy Trail. The print brochure redesign was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and our projected publication date for the new brochure is now 2023-2024. We have envisioned a new interior, fold-out, page-turning design that we’ve passed along to Rossview High School’s Academy of Media Arts and Technology teachers and students. The new design will allow us to feature each section of Montgomery County and downtown Clarksville, so that it’s easier to navigate and create your own personal tours.
Some of these people and locations are already featured on the online versions of the Legacy Trail at VisitClarksville and Montgomery County’s website.
We’ll share details about the new locations and people here on the blog over the course of this year.
So far, we’re planning to add the following:
** Dunbar Cave State Park– Affricanna Town
** Emma Lee Dunlop Moss-Horne Gravesite at Evergreen Cemetery
** Marvin Posey, Jr.–Paintings located on the APSU campus at the Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center
** Port Royal State Park
** Customs House Museum and Cultural Center–Wilma Rudolph exhibit. And, the Leadership Clarksville Exhibit features Dr. and Mrs. Emma Burt, African Americans who owned and operated the first hospital in Clarksville.
** More to be added soon…
