Finally Visited The National Blues Museum

February 13, 2017 Downtown, Featured, Popular Culture No Comments

Last month my husband and I finally visited the National Blues Museum, just a 15 minute walk from our loft. The museum opened in April 2016, but we never got around to visiting until recently. First, we had lunch a Sugarfire Smoke House located in the same building at 6th & Washington.

I’ve been a vegetarian for a quarter century now, but I have no problem eating at BBQ places — as long as they offer something like a portobello sandwich. Smart BBQ places do.

The museum isn’t large, but it’s well-organized. The displays  and signage is fresh looking.

There was a concert later in the evening, our tickets would’ve gotten into that as well. I’ll keep that in mind — will plan our next visit, followed by dinner and a blues concert.

Very glad to see the museum completed, I was a sceptic when I first heard the concept.

“At the end of the day, there’s no legislation, there’s no list of demands, there’s no report that’s going to give the police an understanding that they have to stop killing us. We can change the courts, we can change these different things, but we need to change the culture of the police department and stop hiring certain officers. We can talk about training all day, but training doesn’t fix how you look at me as a man or a human being. No matter if you look at a report or you don’t, if you pass legislation or you don’t, if we have a list of demands or not, one thing we will get them to understand is that they will stop killing us no matter what that looks like.”
