The Metro Board of Parks and Recreation is considering whether to ask the Tennessee Historical Commission to rename North Nashville’s historic Hadley Park after deceased civil rights activist Kwame Lillard.
The Tennessee Historical Commission will hold a second and final hearing on the fate of the bust of Nathan Bedford Forrest at the state capitol, which could lead to its eventual removal.
Commissioners on the Metro Board of Parks and Recreation voted unanimously Tuesday to start the process of removing a Confederate monument from Centennial Park.
The Tennessee Historical Commission won’t consider removing the bust of Nathan Bedford Forrest from the state capitol until early next year. But some Tennesseans weighed in with public comments at the commission’s meeting Friday.
Tennessee officials are expected to take the first step toward removing the bust of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest from inside the Capitol. Gov. Bill Lee says he will convene the State Capitol Commission to meet and vote next week.
