Music Producer Unveils Plans For New South Side Gospel Museum

Music producer Don Jackson unveils plans today for the National Museum of Gospel Music. Jackson says it will be built on the site of the old Pilgrim Baptist Church, which burned down in 2006. He says the Church is the birthplace of gospel music so a museum on the site is a natural fit. Jackson aims to open the doors in 2020.
