Who we are
“Coolness or gentleness of character is so iportant in our lives. Coolness is the correct way you represent yourself to a human being.”–J.K. Adejumo
TRIAAC is a conscious community; and extended family interested in growing identity that recognizes its experience as the essential ingredient need to grow its collective humanity. It is the driving force of its community relationships.
Nationality in a global universe is an outdated trope. Artists with a global consciousness are continuing the struggle of Afrikan people to make human a world made inhuman by individual avarice and nationalistic bloodlust.
TRIAAC people are of many faiths, from many parts of the world but with one organizing principle: family is at the root of community and building relationships is our primary art. Our art is a creative process that mirrors life, and it must be engaged, experienced, and exploited to the collective good of Afrikan people.
We have taken the time and raised the resources from within our community to sojourn to Guinea and Senegal to unlock our mental frame of reference from the Western propaganda about our people and our condition. On the continent we have found strong personalities wrapped in families intact and vigorously pursuing lives shaped from family relations. We have found worldviews different from our own. We have found ourselves and plotted a way back to our right minds.
Together we are a community of interest that shares a love for music, movement, and wise words that transcend the boundaries of race, gender, culture and class and lead to action that enhances our collective human identity.
