Mavis Staples can be found in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's traveling "Women Who Rock" exhibit, currently on display at the Musical Instrument Museum. However, the soul icon, who ironically won a 2012 Grammy Award in the Americana category, easily could fit in several of the loosely genre-demarcated sections of the exhibit. A look at her career leaves her repeatedly stuck between music worlds.
