Edward Kindall was a member of the Nashville Metro Council, representing District 21 in Tennessee from 2015 until 2019.

In 2012, Ed authored the book ‘A walk Down Historic Jefferson Street: From the 1940’s to the early 1970’s, dark clouds and silver linings during an era of segregation’. A Walk Down Historic Jefferson Street is not just a personal memoir but an historical account of Jefferson Street in Nashville, TN, during the 1940’s through the early 1970’s. It specifically highlights a gamut of businesses and residents who called the street their home. Special emphasis is also placed on the unique culture of the street that fostered soulful venues and budding musical greats, top quality teachers and educational facilities, and unwavering strength amid a very socio-economic diverse community. Then, it tells the tragic tale of how Jefferson Street and many others smaller streets, towns, and close-knit communities were destroyed by various local, state, and federal governmental decisions that unnecessarily allowed for the interstate intrusion in the late 60’s.
