Nashville Set To Build National Museum of African American Music

The National Museum of African American Music is scheduled to honor musicians from the Tennessee city and elsewhere.

Nashville is planning to build a National Museum of African American Music, according to Rolling Stone.

The museum is set to honor the city’s musicians, which include Frank Howard, Jimmy Church and Marion James, as well as such iconic artists as Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding.

Although construction on the museum has yet to begin, the museum’s representatives have already started community outreach programs. The museum has an emerging concert series and is teaching Nashville students about instruments. 

The National Museum of African American Music was also set to receive proceeds from an OutKast tribute concert yesterday (April 10) that was scheduled to honor the Atlanta duo.

Renown for country music, Nashville’s Jefferson Street was home to live music venues at which Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King, Little Richard and others performed, the Rolling Stone article says.

      there are 1000's of museums in America that cater to white folk, stolen art & artifacts, guns, horses, dogs, flowers, toys, candy, even a f-cking bacon museum brothers get a 24th, 24th museum in America and this goober is mad, talking about racism & segregation BY LAW (and we know how y'all feel about affirmative action aka "the govt in our business") there shouldn't be any all white college, but we KNOW there are MANY all-white high, middle/junior, elementary, kindergarten schools in the US and little to NONE all Black, or all Asian, all Hispanic, all Persian, all Hindu, all Native schools (you forgot about them didn't you?) that's why the recent stats say the early 60's school segregation was 76%, and in 2014 it's 74% see we be together, looking at how oblivious y'all are due to your sheltered upbringings, it's 2014 and many of you have just seen a black person up close for the 1st time in your life that bigotry runs in your blood fuckboy
