Celebrating The Life

of

Mr. Shelton Lewis Sanders

For I am now ready to be offered,

And the time of my departure is at hand

I have fought a good fight,

I have finished my course,

I have kept the faith;

Henceforth there is laid up for me

a crown of righteousness...

II Timothy 4:6-7

A.A. RELOCATES

With over 20 years experience as a non-profit administrator/consultant; specialist in theater/public relations/grant writer/storyteller/vocal coach/minister.  A. A. was relocated from Newport RI to Charlotte NC in 2004,

things began to progress but was relinquished in 2011 when Paula had to become a fulltime

Care-giver for her husband and daughter.  However she continued to preach and teach God's word whenever and

wherever possible; in her home, in the community, even over internet radio via WGIV The Soul of Charlotte, and

WBND Radio.  After much prayer and obedience the time came for the ultimate sacrifice. In June of 2016 Paula

lost her husband of 44 years due to long term illness.  This led to the latest chapter of events which will take

this world by storm.  Our mission is to teach and share the arts and traditions of cultures, which are connected

through their African heritage to build respect and appreciation for the common thread that binds our diverse

communityProviding youth within schools and afterschool education programs that enhance skills in the arts;

while teaching history, literacy, creativity, group dynamics, public speaking, public performance, and building

confidence.  We will present community wide festivals that celebrate African American history, tradition and

values including Kwanzaa and Freedom Jubilee. Bringing programs to people in familiar settings where they may

live, learn, socialize and worship.  Not only to make them culturally aware of their surroundings but educating 

their finances so they can make a difference in their house holds as well as their community.  The goal is to

offer a positive alternative to the negative influences in the community.
