Tomorrow's Roots Of the African Diaspora (ROAD)

Tomorrow's R.O.A.D., founded in early 2009, is a 501(c)(3) organization with a mission of youth empowerment, using programs and activities rooted in the culture, history and heritage of the African Diaspora. Tomorrow's R.O.A.D. continues the legacy of the Afro-American Children’s Theatre (AACT), which provided performing arts, cultural and historical programs for youth for over 20 years. We aim to empower young people of all backgrounds to understand and make change in the world through implementing and supporting cultural, artistic, and leadership development activities connected to the history and heritage of the African diaspora. Tomorrow's R.O.A.D.'s presentation of Black Nativity, in collaboration with Monica Pettiford's Porch Productions, has now become a holiday tradition, and what was originally known as the Underground Railroad Project has now evolved into the CONNECTIONS Youth Leadership Development Program. Both of these programs serve youth of many age levels and a diverse range of racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
