The Blues and R & B Music Foundation, Inc. is a community development that fosters cross-cultural communication.
Diverse communities shares values about human behavior and the kind endeavors that should be encouraged. We believe diversity
should be recognized and celebrated as a communities great strength.We believe strongly in the community and the continuation
of building our communtiy.
Our foundation has been assembled to present, promote and preserve a unique African American form of music with a rich
history in San Francisco, and in the community of the Fillmore District. It is our goal to continue to create exhibition opportunities
for local blues musicians and to help them as performers, assist them to organize and present the blues to the public secure
performances venues and promote their acts.
We would like to assist the next generation of artist in the community and reassure the continuation of this musical
form. Our goal is to restore the vision of blues in San Francisco a culturally diverse city. Also, provide instruments and
scholarships to aspiring musicians.
We're currently in the process of creating afterschool programs to teach music history and music appreciation. We look
forward to opening at various sites to give free to the public music lessons. We're also fostering such programs within San
Francisco Park and Recreation. We will also be implementing courses originating from the mural project we've completed on
the Post Street side on the Hamilton Recreation Building in San Francisco, CA. This project will be an extension of educational
courses, we would like to do in the Unified School District. This will be our first book project, hopefully with the opportunities
teaching throughout the country as a positive legacy to pass on to all interested, all ages and ethnicity backgrounds etc.
We have also expanded our vision by meeting community needs with Community Outreach programs such as: Youth Outreach,
Men and Women Outreach, Prison and Homeless Outreach programs!

MURAL PROJECT- THE BLUES EVOLUTION PART 1 AND 2
We, the Blues and R & B Music Foundation, Inc., would like to personally thank everyone for the support you've given
us towards the first phase of our mural project located on Post street on the wall of the Hamilton Recreation Gym. The wall
is beautiful and it speaks for itself. It has added beauty to the Fillmore, Western Addition Area.
We've received a lot of wonderful comments and support from the community concerning our mural. What has particularly
stood out to us is the way it affects the youth that pass by all of the time, they look and ask questions. We're on first
name basis with many students that pass by.
The mural represents unity and strength of accomplishments to those who work hard at anything they choose to do. It also
shows the dues that were paid by artist for the next generations of artist. However, what's even more great is that most of
the artist on the walls has come from our beautiful city, San Francisco or Bay Area. What a great legacy to pass on to our
youth giving them a sense of pride and confidence to last them their lifetime, but also the older generation, being able to
remember their part in that struggle that opened doors for many today! A piece of history that should be passed on.
The purpose of this mural and two book project is to educate our youth and enjoyment for those who are interested. With
the books, it will pass on information from the pioneers of music. We will tell the story of those who are still alive, but
also comments from family members whom represent the artist that have passed on.
We're trying to implement programs within the SF Unified school district and we have the support of the individual SF
Park and recreation sites to have afterschool programs teaching what were writing about even more. Any monies raised from
the book will go into a fund to keep these projects going in the school system so it won't affect any budgets and we will
give scholarships to those who would like to further their crafts. We will also be giving instruments to student/adults that
need them. These afterschool programs and seminars etc. will be free to the public. An incentive to promote unity and confidence
in individuals giving them a positive outlook no matter what their circumstances may be.
We, the Blues and R & B Music Foundation, Inc., are looking forward to finishing the otherside of our mural project
and two book project. Therefore, we hope we will have your continuos support in this effort to restore a much needed piece
of rich history back to our communities and city of San Francisco.
