Heal the Hearts, Heal the Homes, Heal the Hoods with Ajamou Butler
Together we will highlight self-love, and how this first step takes you to a powerful step two… a deepened journey of loving your immediate ‘circle’, ‘village’, your home. These first steps will help bring us closer to healing the world around us.
When we are able to work through trauma, stress, and life obstacles, there is peace and power that follows. We’ll explore what we can do to build our internal light and gifts, and ways we can share them with others.
Through this exploration we will come to a better understanding of self-work, the work of Heal the Hood MKE, and the work of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County.
Born and raised on Milwaukee’s Northside, author and lecturer Brother Ajamou Butler has always been one to progress from his pain. Growing up in Milwaukee’s notorious 53206 zip code, Butler was exposed to the uglier sides of poverty. His experiences with poverty up-close as a child have shaped his outlook on life as an adult. In May 2012, Butler launched his non-profit organization, Heal the Hood MKE. Heal the Hood MKE has grown to be an example of pushing against social injustice and rewriting the narrative of inner-city Milwaukee. Heal the Hood MKE has two major arms: 1) Annual Block Parties/Outreach Fairs and 2) In-school curriculum called “We are Not Poets, We Are Messengers!” Ajamou Butler is known to use his experiences in Milwaukee and his spirituality mixed together to come up with his own style of spoken word ministry. Mr. Butler is an educator, a brother, a father, a child of God and a community activist who lives by the motto “Heal the Hearts, Heal the Homes, Heal the Hoods”!
