Welcome to Beck "Where African American History is Preserved"

Thank You! Thank You For Your Support. Please Make Plans To Join Us Again Next Year.

Beck Cultural Exchange Center, Inc., a primary repository of blackhistory and culture in East Tennessee, was established in 1975 and 2015 marks our 40 Year Anniversary! To celebrate this tremendous milestone Beck is inviting the entire greater community to join us in commemorating the Eighth of August at Chilhowee Park on Saturday, August 8, 2015.

Beck is the storehouse of African-American history and, Beck is unique in that, of all of the black museums across the country, none has the collections that Beck Center has; not one can come close. The Beck Museum is a beautiful spacious and magnificent facility, which has a vast collection of both Permanent and Feature Exhibits. The exhaustive collections that Beck has and continues to amass allow the museum to rotate exhibits on an ongoing basis without end.

Beck is a must see historical, educational and cultural experience and is a major tourist attraction. Since the founding of Beck, our broad cross-section of exhibits, artifacts, and, memorabilia, captured in a variety of styles and formats, have captivated the interest of visitors of all ages.

Feel free to tour our website, then come experience Knoxville's most intriguing black history museum for yourself; the Beck Cultural Exchange Center, the place “Where African-American History Is Preserved.”


We look forward to welcoming you.
