Big Thought

Big Thought

Big Thought honors and celebrates the life and lifework of our friend Afiah Bey. For more than 20 years Afiah opened the minds and hearts of young people in Big Thought programs with her gift of storytelling. Thank you Afiah, you will be missed.

Erin Offord, Big Though Chief Programs & Systems Officer shares sentiments of Afiah.

"Ms. Afiah Bey ( Melody) was one of the first artist I met upon arriving at Big Thought. She was so kind and warm. I can’t say enough about Ms. Bey’s spirit, generosity to her community, pride of her culture and excellent artistic practice. She could command any room! Her Pan African programming was an anchor in any community center, church or school. Audiences truly enjoyed her! My favorite memory will be the mesmerized look on young people’s faces as they watched her perform. May she rest in power."

*Afiah recently lost her son as a result of senseless gun violence, please consider contributing to the family's needs to cover funeral expenses.
