Celebrating Black History Month: Meet Ellis E. Fowler

Today marks the beginning of Black History Month 2024, a time when we as a nation recognize and celebrate the contributions of African Americans to U.S. history.

Each year, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) sets a national theme for Black History Month, and this year’s theme is “African Americans in the Arts.”

In honor of that theme, this month, we will be looking back on some of the incredible Black artists to call Clarksville, Tennessee, home.

We are kicking things off with award-winning actor Ellis E. Fowler.

You might recognize him for his roles on “Grown-ish" and Tyler Perry’s “Sistas.” 

His upcoming projects include “Night Shyft” and “Legend of the White Dragon.”

In addition to his acting career, Ellis is a video editor/motion graphics specialist, director of photography and kickboxer.

As we celebrate Black History Month this year, we encourage residents to support African Americans in the arts, whether that means picking up a new book, watching a new film (maybe one of Ellis’s!), or taking a trip to Clarksville’s Customs House Museum. 

We also encourage you to support local, Black-owned businesses, without whom Clarksville would not be the amazing place it is today!
