Christine Kittrell Deserves to be Remembered by All of Nashville

The musicians walk of fame has seven black people on it, not counting the Fisk Jubilee Singers.

Kid Rock is on it. Christine Kittrell is not. And, yes, I get that you have to pay for the star and be willing to show up for the awarding of the star. And Kittrell can’t do that because she’s dead. But it means that our history appears whitewashed. As if all Nashville produced in the 50s/60s was Bobby Hebb, Little Richard, and Jimi Hendrix.
