Maple Room’s entrance is on the north side of the building (side door with awning over it). The guest speaker is local author and historian Rachel Louise Martin, PhD. The author of Hot, Hot Chicken, a cultural history of Nashville hot chicken, and A Most Tolerant Little Town, the forgotten story of the first school to attempt court-mandated desegregation in Clinton, Tennessee in the wake of Brown v. Board, she is especially interested by the politics of memory and by the power of stories to illuminate why injustice persists in America today. She grew up in Murfreesboro and now lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
