The Institute for the Preservation of African-American Music and Arts is the educational and cultural initiative of the Holy Redeemer Educational Consortium envisioned by Bishop Sedgwick Daniels.

 

This initiative is designed to preserve the rich tradition of African-American artistic contributions in the performing and visual arts. Its goal is to integrate the arts into academic achievement and performance utilizing science, technology, engineering and mathematics. By preserving diverse musical genres and legendary contributions of African-Americans and through displaying and exhibiting artifacts, paintings and an array of artistic rendering that demonstrates cultural appreciation of the arts, the I-PAMA will advance awareness of the Black artistic journey through a collection of archival displays and historical footages that depicts the African-American artistic sojourn.The amazing triumphs, struggles, achievements and celebrations of their sojourn will be displayed throughout the institute.

 

The scenic and beautiful campuses of I-PAMA encircle a venue for performing arts productions, special events and a musical cafe featuring southern cuisines with an atmosphere of authentic African-American musical and artistic expressions. Historic and contemporary artistic resources will be accessible through an innovative electronic library designed to enhance research, provide information and preserve testimonials, memoirs and resources that affirm the rich tradition and contributions of an array of artist.

 

For centuries, indigenous Africans embraced the arts, sciences, mathematics & architectural concepts which have garnered notoriety and fostered appreciation for their profound ingenious. The global duplication of their culture and custom has revealed an unprecedented appreciation of their artist forms and contributions. The human transposing of these native Africans did not diminish the ability to preserve the rich traditions, identities and customs. They embraced an unfeigned and rigorous appreciation for the unparalleled and immeasurable traditions when globally dispersed, including their horrific trans-Atlantic middle passage to the Americas. These brutal and inhumane voyages were motivated by African tribal conflicts, European economic greed and the amassed benefits of slave trading in the United States. Their will to survive, belief in the possibility of returning to their native land, faith in their God and passion to protect their ancestral heritage afforded these captured Africans the unique ability to utilize intergenerational transfer of knowledge and traditions within their new communities. Their display of musical and artist expressions resonated through their worship experience and segregated environments.

Parenthetically and incidentally, the devalued appreciation by American and Europe communities would not ultimately defuse the significant contributions that the African tradition would embed into future generations and historians.

The replication of African musical genres and artistic expressions have created multi-billion dollar industries and perpetually defined a plethora of globally recognized forms of Art. The I-PAMA is dedicated and committed to accurately archive and perpetuate a repository of their stellar accomplishments and provide avenue for future artist who can appreciate the African contribution to society.
