The 1946 Columbia Race Riot: Attempted murder or self-defense?
NASHVILLE, TN — On February 25, 1946, a Black woman named Gladys Stephenson returned to the Castner-Knott department store in downtown Columbia to pick up the radio she had taken to be repaired. She had been told to come back several times by the shop, always with a higher price attached to the repair, and once so the shop would buy the radio back from a different customer they had sold it to. This time, she brought her son James Stephenson, an American naval veteran, upon which the two received the radio at around double the original price, and still broken. After this, Gladys and the white department store employee William Fleming had a heated argument, during which sources differ as to whether Gladys was assaulted, or physically threatened, by Fleming.

‘To teach the next generation’: A former schoolhouse for Black children finds a new home in Franklin
On a suburban street in Franklin, Tenn., in the early hours of a February morning, the Lee-Buckner School, a white clapboard schoolhouse, glides by on the back of a semi-truck — slowly, carefully, like the grand marshal of a parade. It’s in the last leg of a 13-mile journey from the tiny rural community of Duplex to its new home in Franklin. Police cars flash their blue lights, blocking off traffic at the end of the road. And watching it all unfold is a group of former students, plus researchers and fundraisers from the Heritage Foundation of Williamson County, who all worked together to make this night happen.
