Caldwell County native Clyde “Pop” Ferguson will part of an exhibit at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture (NMAAHC). The Smithsonian Institute through the StoryCorps Griot Project is collecting stories of African-American families for the new museum.

When StoryCrops heard about Pop, they wanted to record his story. They were interested in Pop’s time spent learning and playing the blues traveling across the United States. Pop’s story, photo and music will be showcased with other African-American history makers like President Barack Obama and Martin Luther King, Jr. Pop is known for his unique style of true blues.

Pop’s story will debut at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture in 2015.
