Cultural Ambassador and Founder of NOSACONN, Inc (, Damon Batiste of NOLA's Royal Family of Music, is pleased to support the founding work of Rosetta Funches and the Oklahoma Black Museum and Performing Arts Center.  Slated to be on the Board of Directors, Batiste's cultural arts work spans decades including current projects in Ghana, Cote d'Ivorie and South Africa. He shares plans of the new venture with the distribution of a new article by Osei Bandele.

Rosetta Funches, Founder and Director of the Oklahoma Black Museum And Performing Arts Center (OBMAPAC)/National African American Jazz Legacy Museum (NAAJLM), in collaboration with talented and professional jazz musicians, jazz students, jazz writers, and jazz supporters at-large, are in the planning stages to establish the national jazz support structures to promote the knowledge, education, performance, the continuing development of jazz, and the preservation of the African American Jazz Legacy for national and international consumption. The NAAJLM Media Committee was formed and the search for the right building to house the NAAJLM continues.

The OBMAPAC was founded by Ms. Funches in 2008; and has been the recipient of thousands of pieces of art created by African-Americans and/or donated since then for sale and/or display. OBMAPAC is located at 4701 N. Lincoln Blvd, Oklahoma City, OK. Ms. Funches also makes the resources available to other Black Interest Organizations (BIOs) for meetings and other community events.

In 2016 Ms. Funches founded the NAAJLM as a subsidiary of the OBMAPAC. Her vision is to have the NAAJLM be a repository and archives for the documentation of the true origin, history, and development of jazz as the only original music created in the USA from the"belly of the slave ships," as described by jazz great Eubie Blake, and from the perspective of the Black/African-American experience, to demonstrate the historical flow of jazz from the arrival of Africans to these American shores to throughout the African Diaspora.It will include the period of African enslavement, freedom from slavery and its Juneteenth celebrations that followed, to the struggle for civil rights, justice, and African-American self-determination, which continues to the present day. The mission is for the NAAJLM to be the premier Jazz Museum in the nation and the world.
