A once-abandoned church is now the first-ever Memphis building to be designated a "National Treasure" by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. 

Clayborn Temple, at 280 Hernando St. next to the FedExForum, played a prominent role in the 1968 Sanitation Workers' Strike. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke in the sanctuary on several occasions. Recently, the building has been re-activated as a community event space.

Last month, Memphis visual art lovers were asked to imagine a new home for a local insitution.

The Memphis Brooks Museum of Art's board of directors unanimously voted to consider moving out of its 100-year-old home in Overton Park. 

That possibility got even closer to reality last week as plans emerged to build a new museum on Front Street and Union Avenue on a piece of city-owned property newly designated for a cultural amenity. 

Brooks executive director Emily Ballew Neff speaks with WKNO's Christopher Blank on why the board sees the move as necessary.
