The National Museum of African American Music, set to open in downtown Nashville next year, just received a $6 million donation from Music City Center. That donation, along with private-sector investments, puts the museum at less than 10% left to raise to complete its campaign.
In a press release from NMAAM, H. Beecher Hicks III, president and CEO, said the following of the donation:
“We are extremely thankful that the Convention Center Authority is making this significant investment in the Museum, and we’re especially pleased that it is given in honor of the late Francis S. Guess. This is a fitting way to honor one of our founders and a former board member of NMAAM and the Convention Center Authority. He was passionate about bringing Nashvillians together and about showcasing the inclusive nature of the city he loved.”
