Love is a commitment to a decision to benefit others.

We were thrilled to work with Alfred Dewitt Ard. Their capabilities and perspective added incredible value to our project. We couldn’t have reached our project milestones without them. It was a pleasure to work with them and we look forward to working with them again.

Working with Alfred Dewitt Ard was nothing short of a dream. Shumeca was an incredibly strategic leader. We were looking for a visionary firm that would understand the cultural and artistic importance of our project and be able to build out and lead an effective team at the same time. Shumeca executed on both of those things at the highest level and was an absolute professional at every turn. We have since worked with Alfred Dewitt Ard on other endeavors and hope to continue to work with them in the future.

Ard’s approach combines a frank honesty with compassion and encouragement. They create a [gracious] space for White leaders to expand their understanding of and confront their personal responsibilities around racism. From that base of understanding and humility, it is possible for them to become a meaningful supporter of racial justice and meaningful change.
