Trace the footsteps of legendary musicians such as country music star Charley Pride, and the iconic Fisk Jubilee Singers. Combine that with a splash of storytelling about early black life in Nashville. Enjoy strolling from Lower Broadway, the most visited street in Nashville; then alongside the peaceful Riverfront Park, and into the historic 5th Ave of the Arts District.

After covering early black life in Nashville, learn more about the civil rights era and enter Woolworth on 5th, the site of the first lunch counter sit-ins during the 1960s Civil Rights Movement in Nashville. Join this Nashville walking tour to see the most unique black history sites and attractions and get the inside scoop on local favorite southern food restaurants and live music venues. By joining this United Street Tours experience, you are helping Nashville become a more inclusive city for all through preservation and awareness.
