“I trust that when I am vanished from this earth, and if there are no lights, nor sound, cameras, stages, canvases or books.nor music, nor dancing, I hope that my work has made a memorable impression, artistically and culturally, so much so, that it changes attitudes and behaviors of the way people view me and other African-Americans as human beings, and as artists.”
-Curtis King, Founder & Executive Director
