18th Annual Nashville Black Pride: October 9-11, 2020
As some out of town supporters & all local Middle Tennesseans may know, Nashville has been
through a lot over the last few months that include recovering from a devastating tornado in March,
dealing with the viral pandemic with stay-at-home orders, and record-breaking power outages due
to a massive wind storm in May.
As the city bands together to support one another by continuing to practice physical/social
distancing, wearing face coverings/masks to reduce the spread of Covid19 and slowly reopen
businesses, we will be closely monitoring how our 18th annual Black Pride weekend will look in
October should the gathering of large crowds/groups restriction still remain in place.
The NBP Board will still be posting applications for our LGBTQ Education Scholarship soon and
acknowledge the recipients of our 2020 BASU Legacy Award for their 10+ year support of our
organization during the October 9-11 weekend as previously scheduled. If we aren’t able to host
our annual Award Dinner to present the scholarships and recognize our legacy honorees, we plan to
celebrate these important milestones virtually.
Our mission & vision remains the same, however, we will not put our community at risk under any
circumstances if there is another wave or increase in Coronavirus cases in the fall! Please follow us
on social media, and check back for updates throughout the summer months on our specific status.
You can continue to financially support our efforts by visiting our store to purchase one of a kind
merchandise, make a donation at any level or become an official sponsor.
In Pride, Service & Gratitude
