White Advocacy Group Returns to Middle Tennessee for 6th Annual Conference

Scott Couch, FOX 17, May 24, 2017


American Renaissance is a movement founded by Yale-educated philosopher and writer Jared Taylor.

“American Renaissance is dedicated to race, realism and white advocacy,” Taylor said in a video that explains the group’s founding principles and goals.


“Whites have the right, they have the duty to remain the majority in their own lands,” Taylor said. “A hundred years ago virtually all whites understood this.”

American Renaissance opposes immigration saying unless we secure our borders and make it harder for foreigners to come here, whites will be a minority in America by 2042.


Jared Taylor and his followers will be back at Montgomery Bell State Park in Burns for their annual conference at the end of July.

It is the group’s sixth visit to Tennessee.

Why do they keep coming back?

The nature is great but Taylor says unlike national hotel chains, state parks like Montgomery Bell can’t turn people away because they don’t like the message.

Previous visits have generated small protests but American Renaissance has largely been under the radar here.

The president of the NAACP in Dickson County, Benny Overton, tells Fox 17 he and his members are not happy. He says American Renaissance should be no more welcome in Dickson than members of the terrorist group ISIS.
