ROOTS & WINGS JOURNEY TO SENEGAL
Roots & Wings has begun the journey working with the young people in the five Zones of Hope. The stories of their experiences and the challenges they face are informing us of how they see themselves and the communities around them. Part of our goal is to take a deep dive into Urban, Appalachian, & West African culture and explore how that shapes the experience of being black in Kentucky.
With this goal in mind Roots & Wings is going to Senegal, but we need your help to get there. We have raised about half of what we need through performances and personal contributions. Please consider donating to help raise the rest. Any small amount helps get us one step closer to making it a reality. We thank you for your support !
