MARYAM F. FOYE
Hi. I'm Maryam.
I am a proud native of High Point, North Carolina, though I only actually lived there a short time. My family is from the coastal Carolinas going back generations but my father being in the military and my mother being a college professor took me all over the country very early. I was priveleged to be a student of varied dialects, rich histories, and constantly changing social dynamics. I found Black people everywhere are under the thumb of the same systemic oppressions.
In defining my role in the fight for equity and liberation I realized I am not a kick down the down activist. I am, however, dedicated to being a tool for people and organizations that are. This sometimes looks like theater infused focus groups, technical writing and editing, retreat planning and white boarding communications strategy. While, I have my own set of special skills, I realize there are people who do some things better, finding those people and connecting them with projects is also a talent I developed for many years and have added to my business model. For larger projects HBC430 partners with established Black and Hispanic professionals to create the best possible system of support for our clients.
I have had the good fortune of collaborating with a diverse range of individuals and organizations, from school systems to the National Guard, from the prestigious Kennedy Center to local street corners.
Client partners have included:
US National Guard
DC Public Schools
United Planning Organization - Freedom Schools
Baltimore Arts Council
Department of Small and Local Business Development (DC)
Black Girl Digital
Senegalese Forum Theatre Festival
The John F. Kennedy Center for the Arts
Black Artists on the Move
and a slew of individual artists and emerging businesses.
I look forward to supporting radical initiatives that go beyond American academic standards and create innovative ways to protect, galvanize and empower historically undervalued communities.
