Fisk University, founded in 1866 by the American Missionary Association, was chartered in 1867 to provide higher education for men and women regardless of race. Named for General Clinton B. Fisk, assistant commissioner of the Freedman's Bureau for Kentucky and Tennessee, it was originally housed in army barracks. The first permanent building, Jubilee Hall, was completed in 1876, and built with funds raised in American and European concert tours by the Fisk Jubilee Singers.
