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.
