But this surprised me:
Until 2000, the neighborhood association's covenant said only white people were allowed to live there, though an exception was made for servants. Enacted in 1956, part of the original document reads:
"Said property shall be used and occupied by white persons except those shall not prevent occupancy by domestic servants of different race or nationality in the employ of a tenant."
There are probably a lot of neighborhoods in Nashville that still have such covenants on the books.
Nice little reminder of how far we've come ... or not.
