The Soulsville Foundation was created in the late 1990's by a group of concerned Memphis business leaders and former employees of Stax Records to ensure that the rich legacy of the Soulsville, USA community-which had been home to Stax in the 1960's and 70's-would not be lost to history. The Soulsville Foundation currently funds and operates three subsidiary organizations: The Stax Museum of American Soul Music is the world's first and only soul music museum. The Museum's objective is to share the story of American soul music-the "Memphis sound" in particular-through live music events, special exhibits, and various community outreach programs. The Stax Music Academy has been serving at-risk youth from throughout the Memphis community with its unique brand of mentoring experiences, high-quality music education programs, and performance opportunities. Our mission at the Academy is to enhance the academic and leadership potential of each student, inspiring them through music to become catalysts for positive change in our community. The Soulsville Charter School provides a day-long, academically rigorous, college preparatory education focused on instilling each child with the thinking skills, work ethic, and appreciation for learning that he or she will need to succeed to the world. In all of its programs and projects, the Soulsville Foundation strives to build on our neighborhood's unique history and cultural importance to make it a thriving, successful urban community. We are always eager to form relationships with local, regional, national, and international partners who share our dedication to making the birthplace of American soul music a safer, strong, prosperous place for all. now and forever.
