FACING NORTH: JEFFERSON STREET, NASHVILLE, an NPT original, explores the legacy of the North Nashville corridor, a historically Black neighborhood with three HBCUs and a large cultural footprint in civil rights, the arts and medicine. Like many African American centers, this one was forever changed by interstate construction and now struggles to balance rejuvenation with gentrification.
