In 1983 it all started with the legendary
musical, Mama, I Want to Sing!
After the longest run in the history of American theater, we've listened to the future generation and this is: Mama Foundation for the Arts. We uplift Black musical treasures to heal and inspire through the power of collective music making.
Support Our Students
With your generosity, we are able to provide tuition-free programming and sustain ourselves as a Harlem legacy institution where an intergenerational and interracial community is promised to “Be Seen and Be Heard” in the fullness of their experience – their voices, their stories, and their hearts. Join the Mama family today and help continue this legacy!
