“Each year at Memphis Music Initiative, we have the honor of working with over 4,000 young people across Memphis, with a focus on improving black and brown students’ equitable access to high quality music engagement. In 2019, we continued to grow as a direct service provider, and as a funder, and as advocates for our young people and the black arts ecosystem. As you will read, the team continued to grow and deepen our programs, but we acknowledge that we are still scratching the surface of meeting the need for all underserved young people to have access to high-quality music engagement.
We are proud of our mission and model, but we have miles to go, and with your help, we will make an even deeper impact in scale and outcomes in the years to come.”
