Social Change Gallery

In Memphis, as in many cities throughout the nation, the 1950s and 60s were years of turbulent change. Ideas and music, once revolutionary, are now foundations of institutions. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a nation through a civil rights revolution, the music that erupted from the streets and studios of Memphis led a cultural, social and civil rights revolution of its own.  The Memphis sound interacted with and reflected the city’s dynamics, and made an indelible imprint upon world culture.
