Soulsville USA Comprehensive Community Plan
The revitalization of the Soulsville USA neighborhood will bring to life the spirit and soul of its original community character. It is a collaborative effort of the residents, authorities and stakeholders to improve the housing conditions, secure quality education and training opportunities, create safer streets and introduce vibrant commercial corridors. Initiatives have already been taken toward this master revitalization, including projects such as the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, the Stax Music Academy/Soulsville Charter School and the New Towne Center.
"The one thing I found to be extremely incredible about Self Tucker was a number of people on that team were already acquainted with Soulsville and the role Stax records had in the community, being the glue that held the community together. "
