Nashville, Tenn. (TN Tribune)–Today is officially recognized as “Dr. T. B. Boyd III Day” by the Metropolitan Council of Nashville and Davidson County.
“When I moved to Salemtown 15 years ago, there was a sign at the intersection of Rosa L. Parks Blvd and Jefferson Street that heralded a new Museum of African-American Music, Art, and Culture. Today, the museum is open on Broadway as the National Museum of African American Music. I’ll never forget meeting Dr. T. B. Boyd III at an announcement for the museum, having learned how instrumental he was in its creation, and having the opportunity to thank him. His legacy is felt in so many ways in this city, and it’s appropriate that I and my colleagues proclaim his birthday Dr. T. B. Boyd III Day in Nashville.
“It brings my family and me such joy to witness the impact that my father had on this community. We are grateful to the Metro Council for proclaiming what would have been my father’s 75th birthday as “Dr. T. B. Boyd III Day”. Thank you to Councilman O’Connell for leading this initiative.
