2006 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Amma will create an art studio at Germantown Beacon Center in Germantown High School where she will work alongside 15 young people (ages 6-18) to design a mural to teach the young people about their African American history and culture, and stories about Germantown's early settlers. Having grown up in this community and this school, Amma wants to use this art program to build leadership among the students, so that they have a creative tool to speak out about issues in their community. The students will work with Amma on all aspects of the mural, and will create a gallery inside the school and host an exhibit at the end of the project to share their individual paintings that created the final mural.
