NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Faith and city leaders held prayer vigil for peace & unity on Tuesday night, as many cities including Nashville have dealt with protests and unrest over the last few days
The vigil was on the front lawn of Nashville’s Historic Courthouse — one of the places where violence broke out on Saturday, leaving behind lots of damage to the building.
The vigil was part of Tuesday’s Metro Council Meeting. 12 Nashville faith leaders, as well as Mayor John Cooper attended with Deputy Mayor of Community Engagement Brenda Haywood leading prayer.
The Mayor’s Office said because of security concerns and social distancing precautions, the vigil was not open to the public and had fewer than 25 people in attendance.
