Join the Downbeat award-winning Jazz Collective and Professor Steve Torok as they explore the music and history of Stax Records.

Stax was founded in 1957 and became one of the most important record labels in American music history, launching the careers of Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Booker T, and the MGs, Wilson Pickett, Mavis Staples, and many others.

Amid the civil rights-era racial strife and deep-seated tensions of the late '50s and '60s, Stax's integrated artist roster and staff fundamentally shaped American soul music, setting an unprecedented and inspiring example that seems all too timely in the current climate.
