Mission Statement

The mission of the Proud African American Foundation (PAAF) is to increase awareness, knowledge and appreciation of African American excellence among all people, while furthering pride, dignity and inspiration in those who identify directly with our heritage. We achieve our mission by producing engaging, educational community events and activities that provide cultural enrichment through the positive portrayals of African American people. All PAAF events promote cultural pride, self-esteem, unity empowerment and understanding. All PAAF events are "FREE" and everyone is welcome.
