Each of NMAAM's galleries will feature carefully curated exhibits that tell the stories of distinctly African American musical genres, as well as the historic events that shaped each musical form. Get a sneak peek at the following galleries: Wade in the Water, Crossroads, and A Love Supreme through our latest blog posts here. We'll share previews of each gallery on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month through the end of 2019.
NMAAM board member Phil Thornton and the Weirdo Workshop invited us to sit in on a recent taping of the We Sound Crazy podcast during their interview with Rhapsody and Rhythm awardee, gospel superstar Kirk Franklin.  Hear what Kirk had to say about music and culture in this exclusive clip from our YouTube channel.
