PBPS Mission Statement
Mission: To create and present educational programs, cultural presentations, and experiences authentically representing Blues culture fostering sustainablility for that culture.
Vision: To preserve, create, and sustain interactions with the Black American and North Carolina Blues traditions and to cultivate these interactions in communities-at-large with specific attention to Black communities by building Blues community, and supporting Blues culture and artists.
My name is Atiba Berkley and in January, 2018 I was honored to be elected as President of the Piedmont Blues Preservation Society, after four years of service to the organization. Chris Roulhac, my predecessor, remains on our Board of Directors and has been such a great support. I’m fortunate to start my tenure with two former PBPS Presidents on my board and in addition to several new members to our board of sixteen. We have a great little family here at the PBPS and I ‘d like to thank each of you as sponsors, members, volunteers, & supporters for you interest, for your time and for your dollars that help support our mission and programs.
