Stax Records officially began in 1960. A company, that evolved from Satellite Records three years prior, the Stax Museum formed in the late 90’s. A group of community leaders, philanthropists and former Stax employees formed the Soulsville Foundation, to revitalize the area, provide mentoring and music-focused educational opportunities for neighborhood children, and open a museum to tell the Stax story.
The Museum Of UnCut Funk remembers and honors Mr. Wilson Pickett. We would like to thank Ms. Veda Pickett Neal, the daughter of legendary soul singer Wilson Pickett, for sharing her memories of her father with us.
