During our time together, we will talk about the many ways Heal the Hood MKE has grown to make a global impact in underserved communities around the globe. We will talk about how the self work we commit ourselves to, has to be a reflection of the community work we devote ourselves to. There is a universal call to action for Communal Healing and it’s up to us as hearers of righteousness and doers of goodness to be healers…in action and in word! Through our discussion, we will be compelled in our hearts to do better and be better & be better servant leaders to the world around us.
Born and raised on Milwaukee’s Northside, scholar 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, Ajamou 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 2 Major arms: 1) their Annual Block Parties/Outreach Fairs and 2) their in-school curriculum called “We are Not Poets, We Are Messengers!”
Ajamou Butler is known to use his experiences as a Black Man in Milwaukee and his spirituality mixed together to come up with his own unique style of spoken word ministry and workshop facilitation. Mr. Butler is an international traveler and an international educator, a 5x self-published author, 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”!
