Earlier this summer, the Bessie Smith Cultural Center here in downtown Chattanooga opened its latest exhibit.

“Chattanooga’s Black Soundtrack” shares the stories of this city’s African-American music makers: the contributions they made across genres and styles, the struggles they endured and the changes they shaped across the generations up to today.

Elijah Cameron is with The Bessie.
