Soulsville

Soulsville is one piece of the greater South Memphis area and is arguably one of greatest neighborhoods for fostering music talent. Aretha Franklin, Maurice White, David Porter, Memphis Slim, and Memphis Minnie called Soulsville home while dozens of others made their mark on music history at the Stax and Royal recording studios. While the original Stax studio was demolished, its legacy lives on in the Stax Museum of American Soul and Stax Music Academy. Soulsville is also home to LeMoyne Owen College, Memphis’ only historically Black college.
