In collaboration with Metro Arts Nashville One Voice Nashville created “My Witness”, a collection of stories from Nashville Civil Rights veterans in a series of 8 podcast episodes. All interviews were conducted by Metro high school students with coaching, training and support from One Voice Nashville Director, Mary Margaret Randall. This project supports the installation of the Nashville Civil Rights-inspired public artwork, Witness Walls, next to the Metro Courthouse in downtown Nashville. #NashvillePublicArt #WitnessWalls #MyWitness
Schools Represented: Big Picture, Hillsboro, Hume-Fogg, Maplewood, Martin Luther King Junior Magnet, and Overton.
