The Beck Cultural Exchange Center (Beck) is the place “Where African American History is Preserved.” Beck was established in 1975 with a mission that has remained unchanged. Beck is as an African American teaching and learning museum and cultural center that serves as a State of Tennessee designated primary repository of black history and culture in the city of Knoxville and throughout East Tennessee. Absent of Beck, there is no single organization in the region that provides this invaluable service. Over the past 41 years, Beck has been entrusted with an extensive collection of historical archives deeming it Knoxville’s storehouse of regional African American History and Culture.
Thank you for visiting the Beck website. Please make plans to come and tour our facility.
