The Stax Music Academy is an after-school program where teenagers from some of Memphis’ poorest neighborhoods learn how to dance, sing and play instruments. The academy’s students play annual shows in Memphis and have toured to Washington, Italy and Australia, helping spread the soulful “Memphis Sound.” (AP Photos/Adrian Sainz)
