The J.R.-Turner Foundation is a Cultural Health Provider (C.H.P.) and Non-Governmental Organisation (N.G.O.) inspired by Africans to build prominent Monuments, Sculptures and Statues dedicated to the restoration and preservation of African history through inspirational images of Great African men and women from around the globe, to educate the masses with positive visual impressions.
This initiative has been inspired by 3 Great Africans whom we must acknowledge for their contributions to the development of Africans, at home and abroad. Jesse Richardson Jr. (Renowned Artist), C. Gregory Turner (African Liberator) and Muhammad Ali (World Champion). We are on a conquest of using the examples of their experiences to impact primarily the youth, those of African descent and all other ethnicities through a creative landscape of creativity, artistry, travel and the fight against all injustices wherever it may be.
The problem is that too many people around the world are uninformed, uneducated and unfamiliar about the positive rolls that African people have made globally. African poets, inventors, scientist, liberators, kings and queens. This misinformation and lack of education on Black History has led to negative stereotypes of African people on the continent and around the world. Leading to isolation, segregation and eventually the delusion of African people and their history.
The solution and purpose of the Jr. Foundation is to provide positive exposure to inform people across the globe and the youth in particular about the positive contributions that Africans have made to humanity through the erection of monuments.
The Jr. Foundation will erect historical monuments identified as “The Greatest Memorial Park” to be placed in 7 locations around the globe. The park will feature plaques of over 1000 Great Africans from every nation that have made a historic and positive contribution to humanity. Each plaque will tell a unique story about the lives of each person spoken in their own words. Allowing visitors the opportunity to witness African History with their own eyes and not just through the eyes of others. Historical monuments are the cultural heritage of any country. They speak a thousand words about culture, its traditions, and historical significance. Monuments take us to the path of knowing our past and connecting it with the future allowing people to understand true African history for generations to come.
TO BE AWARE IS TO BE ALIVE
Being culturally aware is to be alive, and is the key to success in our world of globalisation. It is important for our children to understand underlying values that may explain a certain behaviour in others in order to shift perspectives and see where someone else is coming from. To be culturally aware will help them to communicate on all levels and become more culturally diverse, which can only be acquired through education.
CULTURE IS KEY
Learning about other cultures opens up a whole new world of opportunities. Networking and making new friends abroad will open doors for productive relationships that will allow them to share different cultural experiences.
The Jr. Foundation is committed to the empowerment of youth from communities across the globe and will continue to educate along true cultural lines. We will accept donations from various donors that will assist in giving our children the education needed to allow them a brighter future.
