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.

THE CALL TO RESPOND

In addressing Milwaukee’s Black youths disconnect to their community, culture, and faith, Holy Redeemer was compelled to transform our youth through innovative strategies and initiatives for spiritual, economic, educational, familial, and societal reunification. This project utilized a beautiful 18-acre campus to engage Black youth in the pursuit of cultural and religious awareness. Alarming statistics and numerous social burdens created a destructive course of action for Black youth.  Through intentionally designed dangerous tactics through systematic oppression, Black youth are confronted with an array of challenges. IPAMA was considered a prototype for success when stakeholders interested in Black youth advancement unite.
