Empowering Black, Indigenous, and People of Color Artists, Community Organizers, and Activists to bring about positive change in their local communities.

BIPOC artists, community organizers, and activists play a significant role in the movement towards black liberation. There is no livelihood in the community without Art and Culture. These revolutionaries brought us the Harlem Renaissance, the Civil Rights Moment, The Black Arts Movement, The Black Power Movement, Hip Hop, and the most contemporary, Black Lives Matter movement.

We want to provide the next generation of BIPOC artists, community organizers, and activists with the opportunities they need to master their craft to continue the efforts begun by cultural pioneers like James Baldwin, Langston Hughes, Claudia Rankin, Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Nina Simone, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Amiri Baraka, Askia Toure, Audre Lorde, Dudley Randall, Gwendolyn Brooks, Haki R. Madhubuti, Hoyt W. Fuller, Ishmael Reed, Larry Neal, Zora Neal Hurston, Maya Angelou, Nikki Giovanni, Rosa Guy, Sonia Sanchez, Assata Shakur, Gill Scott Heron, The Last Poets, Native Tongue, Public Enemy, Jungle Brothers, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Bookman, Nanny of the Maroons, Jean-Jacques Dessalines etc. 

We have to remain stringent in our commitment to promote, service, and provide platforms and access to Black artists, community organizers, and activists change in their communitie
