Description:

For Black History Month, the Stax Museum honors four legends who were all drawn to Stax Records because of the opportunities that existed at the corner of College and McLemore during the company’s heyday. “The Magnetic South” looks at how drummer Al Jackson, Jr., DJ-turned-label owner Al Bell, songwriter Bettye Crutcher, and Soul icon Mavis Staples all came to Memphis, and ended up changing the world around them.

In this special event, which is free and open to the public, guests will view the world premiere of the museum’s new Virtual Black History Month Tour, followed by conversations and performances by Memphis musicians Terence Clark, Keia Johnson, and Tonya Dyson, and remarks by actor Kenon Walker.

COVID safety protocols will be in place and all guests must wear facial masks.
