What We're Watching: Call & Response The Sound of Black Arts Revolution
Memphis Music Initiative (MMI) recently announced the launch of "Call & Response: The Sound of Black Arts Revolution," a campaign and "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," according to the announcement in late March.
The brand-new Call & Response website and Episode One of our campaign web series provide details about the initiative, organizing around power and institution building through real investment, and how MMI is putting their dollars to work to transform the way Black creative youth development is centered and funded. You're going to want to watch the video!
