Who We Are

A Sign of the Times of the Carolinas’  is a non-profit 501(C)-3 organization that raises the level of appreciation and support of music and the performing arts through performances, educational workshops and programs for the community that explore (through music, dance and the spoken word) the contributions of Africans and African-Americans in the history of the world.

We are dedicated to improving our community through music productions and educational programs that positively reflect the rich musical heritage that is uniquely African American. From the djeli (griots) of West Africa to the poets of Harlem, from Louis Armstrong to James Brown; all ‘A Sign of the Times of the Carolinas’ programs transform the listener through high quality performances, workshops and recordings that synergistically “Preserves the Legacy” and “Creates New Music” that is steeped in the African American tradition.

We value the struggles of our ancestors, the tenacity of our people, the potential of our children and the beauty that exists in all people!
