About Beck Cultural Exchange Center

    Beck Cultural Exchange Center is the place “Where African American History & Culture Are Preserved.” The Beck Center was established in 1975 with a mission that has remained unchanged. The Beck Center is a an African American teaching and learning museum and as well as a 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.

    Named in honor of James G. & Ethel B. Beck, it is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established in 1975 as a result of Knoxville’s Urban Renewal projects. The projects relocated and displaced many black families, churches and businesses. Absent of the establishment of Beck, these places and the people may never have existed. Today Beck is the storehouse of African American history and culture.
