On my last day in Ghana, I went out just before dawn into the Atlantic Ocean. It was dark with only the moon for light. I immersed myself in the water and asked the ancestors what my mission should be. What did they want me fight for? They said: Remember. Remember where you came from. Remember who you are. Remember who you were. Remember us. Remember our stories. Teach other to remember. Remembering is freedom. I vowed from that day on, that I would remember and I would use my art, music and facilitation to help others to reconnect to their history.
The mission of The Remember Project is to leverage artistic collaboration between African people of the world to challenge oppressive cultural practices, laying the foundation for social transformation.
We travel the world making music with local artists that affirms Black unity, identity and/or addresses some social justice issue.
