Celebrating the heritage and legacy of Flagg Grove School along with its most famous student, Anna Mae Bullock, known worldwide as Tina Turner.

Tina Turner

Anna Mae Bullock was born November 26, 1939, in a small community in Haywood County, Tennessee, called Nutbush. Her childhood school, Flagg Grove School, was moved from its original location in the Flagg Grove community outside Nutbush to the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville on June 1, 2012.

Fans gathered in September of that year to honor Turner and for a special Fan Ribbon Cutting of the school. This small event has led to an annual celebration of the legendary singer and her heritage in Nutbush and Haywood Coounty.

Tina Turner Heritage Days is held each year on the 4th weekend of September at the Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville. Fans from all over the world visit during this time to get to know each other, tour Nutbush and the surrounding area and celebrate the music of their favorite singer.

The annual event includes
Nutbush tours, concerts and a stew competition.
