I want to thank Mea Boykins For the work she does in our communities through her non-profit, Student Emergency Assistance, Inc. Mea hosted a back to school bash at the Trap Music Museum where children in the surrounding neighborhood got to enjoy activities, giveaways, and free school supplies. Professionals from all walks were in attendance, . Mea had a few of her guest’s including myself speak on what is that they do so the children in attandance can see people just like them doing what they love. Which brings up my topic of representation.
traditionally the african culture is an audio visual culture. Having a healthy image of ones cultural identity is so important in any culture. Take law for example. Lawyers use templates to kick start, Likwise, graphic and webdesigners use templates . So having a proper image to model yourself after has an influence on what one will acheive. If children look to celebrities as role models how much more impactful could it be if the in reach of them them are doing great things as well.
I truly enjoyed seeing the children enjoying themselves and paying attention to what was going on around them. What better place to have a back to school bash than the Trap Music Museum. A place that resignates with them. Good job Mea!
