542c/1245355890-rock__soul_sign.jpg What does the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum have in common with the Old State House in Boston, Independence National Historic Park in Philadelphia, Louis Armstrong Memorial Park in New Orleans, and Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming?

Among other things, I suppose, they're all this year's recipients of grants from the Globus American Icon Special Grant Program. That's the story according to

The grants are, um, granted by Tourism Cares, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity based out of Massachusetts. This is the fourth grant in a row (dating back to 2006) for Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum.
