Lunch & Learn | Tennessee’s African American Musical Heritage

Curators of the award-winning exhibition, “I Have a Voice: Tennessee’s African American Musical Heritage,” organized by the Tennessee State Museum, will speak and perform some of the music of black Tennesseans that transformed American music.

The award-winning exhibition, I Have a Voice: Tennessee’s African American Musical Heritage, organized by the staff at the State Museum, continues to travel to museums across the state. In this program, historians Graham Perry, curator of Social History, and Mike Bell, curator of Popular Music, together with Lorenzo Washington, CEO and Founder of Jefferson Street Sound, will speak about and perform some of the music of black Tennesseans that transformed American music, including spirituals, blues, ragtime, jazz, gospel, rhythm and blues, rock and roll, and soul music. These musicians have influenced and enriched music around the world, from the early blues legends of W. C. Handy and Bessie Smith to the soul hits of STAX Records in Memphis.

The State Museum’s Lunch & Learn series is just what it says — a chance for participants to eat lunch while learning something about Tennessee history at the same time. Each presentation will begin at 12:15pm and will last about 30 minutes. All of the programs are FREE to the public and will take place on Level B of the State Museum in front of the stage. For those unable to attend the Lunch and Learn, the event will be livestreamed on the Tennessee State Museum’s Facebook Page.
