This year marks the 17th anniversary of the BAM-Bedford
Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation partnership. Through this
collaboration, more than 4,000 students have been given the
opportunity to study the performing, visual, and literary arts as
well as the cultural history of several countries in Africa and its
diaspora. The program culminates with public performances at
Restoration Plaza and on the BAM stage.
Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, the nation's first community development corporation, is dedicated to improving the quality of life of the people of Central Brooklyn and fostering growth and development through economic, cultural, educational, and social ventures.
