Ifetayo Cultural Arts Academy has just released their first ever publication, "In the Spirit." This limited edition collectors book highlights over twenty years of memorable Ifetayo moments and is packed with breathtaking performance photos, inspirational quotes, and an overview of the organization's history.
The following is an excerpt from the introduction to the book, written by Kwayera Archer-Cunningham, Founding President & CEO of Ifetayo and a Guild trustee:
"In 1989, I decided to open an organization that would be a reservoir of cultural nourishment for the minds of children of African descent. By using the arts to build cultural awareness, pride, and heightened self worth, we believed we could encourage an unshakable outcome of collective dignity, no matter the obstacle. What we received with such dedication, determination and fellowship from the community was an unwavering level of support, which, to this day includes scores of families who see Ifetayo not as a place but as a very important aspect of their family and community life."
