Description

At the DAWA website, a bit further below poet Joe B‘s heartening video testimony of the Austin nonprofit, is the root of DAWA’s work in a single quote from West African writer Malidoma Patrice Somé: “One can say, ‘Teach me what you know,’ but the better request is, ‘Teach me about what teaches you.'”


This lifelong learning experience inspired Jonathan “Chaka” Mahone (Riders Against the Storm) to create DAWA in 2019. In addition to providing support for people of color in the Austin community, there’s an emphasis on art and its many practitioners – artists, musicians, social workers, teachers, healers, service industry workers – all serving as catalysts toward social and cultural change.
