Update on the Chicago Gospel Music Museum

By: Joseph Middleton

Well readers, I'm back home in H-town. I had a wonderful time in Chicago, seeing places where golden era gospel greats lived and flourished. I'll post about that trip at a later date. In the meanwhile, here's an update out of Bronzeville regarding Rev. Stanley Keeble's efforts to have a museum dedicated to the history of black gospel music up and operating by October 26, 2010.
Gospel museum: Collectors want to pay homage to gospel heritage

Note: Bob Marovich is not donating his collection to the museum. Don't know how that got in there, must have been wishful thinking by the writer at the Tribune. ;-)
