Museum Honoring African-American Music Coming to Nashville

By Kevin Rutherford

A new museum in Nashville will honor African-American contributions to music, both locally and nationally.

According to Rolling Stone, the National Museum of African American Music is planned to be built in Music City as part of the redevelopment of the former site of the downtown Nashville Convention Center, with construction starting as soon as 2015.

The museum will feature exhibits on artists like B.B. KingMarvin Gaye and Otis Redding, but that’s not all; in addition to nationally-acclaimed musicians, it’ll also include some recognition of black musicians who made their mark in Nashville.
