Stolen From Africa is a Black Arts education organization founded on creating spaces for dialogue, especially the challenging ones in order to achieve a collective sense of knowledge wisdom and understanding. In order to build community we need non-judgmental spaces where we feel encouraged through vulnerability to speak our truths, especially our youth.
As we transition from African Heritage Month and launch Black Mental Health Week, we recognize that todays youth are dealing with trauma, grief, addiction and more, which is why we are coming together to hold space for our youth, to de-stigmatizing their experiences and facilitate meaningful community supports that connect, inspire and activate!
