– One year ago, Nashville Music Equality started out as a panel entitled "A Conversation on Being African-American in the Nashville Music Industry" for #BlackoutTuesday and #TheShowMustBePaused where more than 1,000 people heard about the stories of their African American colleagues.
Today, NME celebrates its first anniversary by bringing back the same panel for an update at 6:30 p.m. eastern.
"Tonight's conversation will pick up one year later to see from our panelist's views of the good, the bad, and all that is in between from then to now," NME said in a press release.
The original panelists include singer Mickey Guyton, Shannon Sanders (BMI), Gina Miller (EOne Nashville), Kortney Toney (WMA), Charlene Bryant (Riveter Management), Candice Watkins (Big Loud Records) and a special addition, Brian Sexton (Creatives Day). Moderators Beverly Keel and Sekou Franklin also will return.
Registration is open for the free event.
