Tubman Museum, Visit Macon and the Otis Redding Foundation
invite you to a reception to celebrate the re-installation of the exhibition.
The King of Soul: Otis Redding in Photographs.
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.
