Thelonious, an Art 1st...Italy bound
Thelonious Stokes, is the first African-American slated to graduate, and one of only two African-Americans in the entire world, to be accepted and attending the full school program at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy. With your help, he can finish the entire program, and become the first African-American in the world to graduate from the three year program. Deemed a prodigy, by art enthusiasts, he is also one of the youngest, at age 22. This is a historical moment and just goes to show that with God anything is possible. The unconventional journey that led him here was by no means easy, but he, "we", made it. Please share his-story by giving what you can to help make this dream, now reality, possible. There are no scholarships available until Year 2, of the 3 year program. Thelonious ultimately exemplifies what can happen if you write the vision, and walk your path. You can be a young, black male from the South Side of Chicago, breaking odds, defeating obstacles and making history. #TheloniousStokesisaChicago1sttoFlorenceAcademyofArt+ Read More
