Every culture has a legacy that they focus as part of their history, the art festival is no different what the problem seems to be is that the event itself is not self sufficient, and depends heavily on government funds by way of grants along with city budgets. Very little on the collectors and sponsors who should be the benefactors.
What is needed no longer exist the veterans of this event are no longer involved the new money generation really must ask themselves what are they doing to give back to their communities;
We now have billionaires, Why are we still depending on the services of grants and government?
25yrs. is enough time to have establish an endowment a healthy one and yet we are still begging.
This is not a world problem this is a Black America issue and only Black America can solve it Bill Cosby, Camille, Oprah, Tyler, and the rest of the deep pockets that stems from there allows us to see what we are not doing they the names above cannot do it alone!
