MISSION STATEMENT
The Blues and R & B Music Foundation, Inc. is a San Francisco-based  Non-Profit orginization dedicated to the exhibition and preservation of blues, rhythm and blues and will eventually incorporate all genres of music.
 
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.
