The Beck Cultural Exchange Center


 




The Beck Cultural Exchange Center, named after James and Ethel Beck, preserves the achievements of Blacks in Knoxville, the State of Tennessee and the nation.





The Beck features the William Henry Hastie Room which houses an extensive collection of memorabilia of the first Black Federal judge, the first Black Governor of the Virgin Islands, and a native Knoxvillian.

Just minutes away from the birthplace of the State of Tennessee, Blount Mansion, is the Beck Cultural Exchange Center. The Beck, surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds, is a vibrant tribute to Black Knoxvillians and Tennesseans. Through films, books, records, changing exhibits and cultural programs, the Center documents the cultural contributions made to every aspect of society.
