Congratulations to our June Organization Member of the Month, The Mobile Alabama Africatown Drummers!
M.A.A.D. was established in 2021, by Wayne Curtis, with the sole purpose of supporting the youth in Africatown and surrounding areas on their journey to knowledge, purpose, and onto their destiny. They strive to do the following:
- To teach
- Inspire a sense of pride and interest in one’s culture
- Develop a sense of self-worth
- Instill discipline
Their mission is to use instruments, namely African drums, to bridge communities, foster healing, and cultivate enjoyment.
