June is African American Music Appreciation Month.
To kick off our month of activities and events, the
Tubman Museum, Macon Convention and Visitors Bureau
and the Otis Redding Foundation invite you to a reception
to celebrate the re-installation of the exhibition.
Otis Redding is known and loved worldwide as the King of Soul. But beyond his success as a singer he worked hard to develop the talents of other artists, was a dedicated family man, and a leader in the musical community. The boundless energy of his stage performances created a larger than life image of the artist. These photographs provide a glimpse of Redding’s true, multi-faceted personality. Though his life was cut short, he left an enduring legacy which lives on in his music, and through the work of the Otis Redding Foundation.
