After being swallowed up by chatter on Sulphur Dell ballpark, the question of long-planned African American culture museum resurfaces

Last month I openly questioned why top-down discussions about a proposed ballpark at Sulphur Dell--generated mostly by a campaigning CM Jerry Maynard--have mowed down older plans for building the Museum of African American Music, Art, and Culture at the corner of Jefferson Street and Rosa Parks Boulevard.

This week CM Erica Gilmore's Office sent out an e-mail that includes an update on the museum:

Update and Renderings from the African American Museum, Director Paula Roberts

Let's hope the focus on development gets back on the long-term and older commitments instead of chasing election-year dreams of a ballpark that help sweeten campaigns but don't help our North Nashville community at this point. Local news media still hasn't touched the question of the museum in a long time.
