NASHVILLE, TENN. (December 2, 2019) – Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. Giving Tuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 3rd, and throughout the year.
This Giving Tuesday, The National Museum of African American Music will participate in the 2019 initiative, delivering a call to action for fans, followers, and ambassadors to contribute to the museum’s ability to fulfill its mission.
Music transcends barriers, and it is our common love of music that has the power to unite us as a community and as a country. This Giving Tuesday, we ask you to join us as “One Nation Under a Groove” and donate to the National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM).
NMAAM, set to open in Summer 2020, will be the only museum dedicated solely to preserving African American music traditions and celebrating the influence African Americans have had on music. Although our building is not yet open, we have been operating as a Museum Without Walls for years.
As a Museum Without Walls, NMAAM has provided educational enrichment for hundreds of Davidson County Schools students, hosted monthly interactive community programming, and honored living legends such as Kirk Franklin, Nile Rodgers, and Patti Labelle. It is YOUR support that makes any of this possible.
“Your generosity matters, and it is critical to NMAAM’s efforts to ensure robust programming and educational exhibits,” NMAAM Assistant Director of Development Kara Duke said. “We need you on December 3rd! Help us in our mission to educate the world, preserve the legacy, and celebrate the central role African Americans play in creating the American soundtrack.”
Those who are interested in joining NMAAM’s Giving Tuesday initiative can text theNMAAM” to 243725 or visit blackmusicmuseum.org/donate to give.
