The Stax Music Academy On World Cafe

As important is the Stax Records museum is to soul music and its fans worldwide, it's the Stax Music Academy that matters most to the Memphis community.

As part of our "Sense of Place" spotlight on Memphis, we took a tour of the campus and spoke with Tim Sampson of the Soulsville Foundation, which runs the academy.
