African American Resources at the Tennessee State Library

For our November Monthly Meeting AAHGS Nashville is pleased to have Trent Hanner of the Tennessee State Library and Archives as our guest speaker!  Please RSVP if you can join us! We will meet Saturday, November 5th at 9:30 am in the Civil Rights Room at the downtown Nashville Public Library.

Trent will share with us details about the resources at the Tennessee State Library that can aid in researching individuals of African American ancestry. Now is your chance to learn more about the many great resources our State Library provides.

Trent Hanner is the senior reference librarian at the Tennessee State Library and Archives, where he has worked for ten years. After receiving his undergraduate degree at the University of Tennessee, Trent stuck around Knoxville for two more years to earn a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science. He loves telling folks about the many treasures and services offered by their State Library and Archives. When he isn’t in the stacks pulling books, you can usually find him at Nashville’s Belcourt Theatre or on one of Music City’s beautiful greenways.

After the meeting, we welcome you to spend time working on your own family history research; books will be available to aid you. If you are able to join us, please register to let us know you’re coming. The meeting is open to the public and we look forward to seeing you there!
