The Kenya J. Webster Fund

LEAF Schools & Streets has established a fund to continue Kenya Webster's mission of teaching West African traditions through drumming, songs, stories, cuisine and clothing to youth in the Shiloh community, at the YWCA, and beyond. The fund will also create opportunities for aspiring teaching artists to study West African traditions in Kenya's beloved country of Mali.

In honor of Kenya J. Webster
LSS Teaching Artist





“I just feel like when you drum you’re on top of the world and you can do anything…it’s just another form of expression – one that defies any type of language and it raises the standards. It’s one of those things that anybody can do, and when you feel successful, when you feel unified… it’s like you can do anything.”                      -Kenya J. Webster
