In 1968, society was breaking down as battles erupted over the Vietnam War, cultural values and race. There was the triumph of orbiting the moon for the first time, but also the tragedies of losing two proponents of peace – the Rev Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy. It was a time of people protesting against an incumbent administration, fighting for civil rights, and promoting world peace versus war.

Today, the nation is again severely polarized, this time along ideological and partisan lines with deadly violence in mass shootings becoming the new normal. We are once again a nation at an inflection point of change. TEDxNashville 2019 centers around this changing world as we explore hopeful stories in our world, learn about recent innovative breakthroughs, and experience the positive impact of human creativity. Join us as we bring this conversation and critical engagement to the TEDxNashville stage at TPAC.
