Sounds of Blackness Sign

Sounds of Blackness Sign

One of our favorite events of the year happens TONIGHT at the Minnesota Historical Society, Retrorama!

This year, fashion designers are taking their inspiration from the current exhibit, Sights, Sounds and Soul: Twin Cities Through the Lens of Charles Chamblis. This sign, which will be on view at the event, is an early bus advertisement for a seminal group in the Minnesota music scene, Sounds of Blackness.

For more information or to purchase a photograph of this item, view this sign in our collections database.
