A new museum designed to showcase African American music is in the works in Nashville, Tenn.

The National Museum of African American Music (NNAAM), the first project of its kind in the country, will feature exhibits, galleries and artifacts all designed to display African Americans’ impact on the nation’s music.

“Telling the comprehensive story of how African Americans have impacted music is a logical fit with the city’s brand, and without a question will enhance Music City’s reputation as ‘the place’ for all things music,” H. Beecher Hicks, NNAAM’s board chairman said in a statement. “As a central location for birth and growth of music in this country, there is no better place to honor these contributions to the music industry–a business estimated to create a $6.4 billion per year national economic impact.”
