Abram Wilson Foundation Trailer
Introduction by CEO & Founder, Jennie Cashman Wilson
"Though life is hard I come from a history of greatness, so I will be great”
Abram Wilson, 30th August 1973 - 9th June 2012
Abram Wilson was my husband and an acclaimed jazz trumpeter, composer and educator from New Orleans. During his life he touched thousands of lives through his music and stories, helping people to discover their greatness along the way.
I believed it was important that we continued that legacy and so in November 2012 I established the Abram Wilson Foundation for Creative Arts. We need artists like Abram with the same focus, self-belief, imagination, optimism and generosity of spirit to help us discover our greatness, our voice and our best selves. Through the Abram Wilson Foundation we will continue Abram's work of reaching out and inspiring children and young people both here in the UK and beyond.
I am extremely proud of what we have achieved over the last couple of years, all of which has been made possible with love, passion and good will. We are now embarking on the next phase of our journey and I would love to invite you to join us in making our ambitions possible.
