BLACK HISTORY in the making…VICTORY GRILL – Austin, TX

Our official first stop in Austin was the Victory Grill; a small club/restaurant established in 1945 as part of the chitlin’ circuit.  Turns out legendary artists like B.B. King, Ike and Tina Turner, and many others swung through this spot on their way to becoming national recording artists.  We had a chance to speak with Clifford Gillard about the Grill’s significant history as a space for Black art/music.
