The museum features an interactive exhibit and artifacts – such as Louis Armstrong’s trumpet, a Gibson “Lucille” guitar played by BB King, and Billie Holliday’s performance contracts. – which describe a history of black music ranging from spiritual songs to blues, jazz, rock ‘n’ roll, funk, hip-hop and modern pop.

In partnership with Nissan, the museum is also celebrating Black History Month with a new program for aspiring musicians studying at local historically black colleges and universities. Titled “Fine Tuning: A Masterclass Series,” the program pairs students with industry professionals at two events this month.
