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!
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.
