Life Pieces to Masterpieces is a Washington, D.C. based nonprofit that uses artistic expression to develop character, unlock potential and prepare African American boys and young men to transform their lives and community. The organization aspires to mold young men into gentlemen, scholars, artists, and athletes. Morehouse alumnus Curtis Andre Kearns III I chairs the board of directors for the organization. He, along with two other Morehouse Men, Lamell McMorris and Cameron Jones, challenge the board to be all it can be in its effort to champion young African American men.
There is a myth that young black men from challenged areas of Washington, DC aren’t expected to become productive, responsible men in our society. The reality is that 100-percent of the boys and young men involved with Life Pieces to Masterpieces graduate from high school and aspire to college. If they move on to college, most will be the first in their family to attend.
To feed this aspiration for college, most recently, the organization invited the boys and young men from the program to the AT&T Nations Football Classic, Morehouse vs Howard.
