The Citizenship Project

NPT's original series about the history of the United States after the Civil War.

We’re taught that citizenship involves certain rights and duties but the reality for many citizens in minority communities, these rights of citizenship are not automatically granted. Nashville Public Television’s original series The Citizenship Project explores these stories, one hundred years after the Civil War and into the 20th century.

The Citizenship Project is a local public television program presented by NPT.

NPT’s The Citizenship Project is made possible by the support of Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area and the First Tennessee Foundation.
