We at Memphis Music Initiative are beyond excited to announce Call & Response: The Sound of Black Arts Revolution. The campaign is just that—a call to funders in the creative youth development nonprofit space to do better by the Black and brown leaders who give so much of themselves to their communities, and the young people they serve. Black Pay Matters. Black Legacy Matters. Black Rest Matters.
Click through to the Call & Response website to learn more about the initiative, and how MMI is putting our dollars to work to transform the way Black creative youth development is centered and funded. And be sure to check out Episode One of our campaign web series, "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things."
Call & Response is the beginning of a Black arts revolution, but it doesn’t stop here. Your help amplifying this message is key in building momentum for change.
