Former Metro Councilman Kwame Leo Lillard, who participated in demonstrations and helped organize Freedom Rides as a college student and recent graduate in the early 1960s, protested again outside a workshop about the project last month.

In a story published March 19, Lillard told The Tennessean, “There’s no way in the world a Chinese kid from California who’s under 50 years old can come here and develop a piece of art that symbolizes the struggle of the Nashville Movement.”
