Tennessee State Museum explores histories of Black businesses with month-long ‘Lunch & Learn’ series
The ‘Legacy of Black Entrepreneurship in Tennessee’ series will highlight five historic Black businesses, kicking off February 2 with Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack. Throughout the month of February, the Tennessee State Museum will honor the stories of some of Tennessee’s most noteworthy historic Black businesses with the ‘Legacy of Black Entrepreneurship in Tennessee’ series. Each Thursday as part of its ‘Lunch & Learn program, a guest will join the museum’s curator of social history, Tranae Chatman, for a conversation on how they continue the legacy of their family businesses. Visitors will learn the history of these businesses from a new generation of leaders as they share their own experiences and insight into their family history. Events will take place at noon, CST, in the Museum’s Digital Learning Center, and be live-streamed on the museum’s website at <TNMuseum.org/Videos> except where noted.
