CELEBRATING BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Black Antiquity is Nashville's observance of Black History Month. In collaboration with local Nashville organizations and businesses, Black Antiquity is bringing you two weeks of history and celebrations with the kick-off of Black Geek Week!
In honor of Carter G. Woodson's National Negro History Week, we launched Black Geek Week Nashville as part of our Black History Month festivities starting Sunday, February 11, 2018. The week’s events center around the release of Marvel's Black Panther and a celebration of those who have pushed the boundaries of thought and technology. Moreover, the events seek to expose Middle Tennessee to a demographic of black “nerds” and “geeks” who are rarely highlighted in pop‐culture and contemporary discussions on geek culture. The week will consist of Black Panther themed film screenings; art exhibits; panel discussions, party's, shows, fashion exhibitions, yoga, dance and even an innovation and technology leadership conference for high school students from all over Tennessee.
