To all who believe in what we do here at the AAAI, we ask for your continued, new, and renewed support. COVID-19 has also caused financial challenges. So, in addition to attending our virtual performances and events, please give to the AAAI. You can make a gift to the AAAI, or specially to the African American Dance Company, African American Choral Ensemble, or IU Soul Revue.
