Wisdom In Rhyme, Inc partnered with Kitenge Africa Foundation, M-M-Movement and Kansas Academy of Theatrical Arts to do a 6 day arts camp for the vulnerable and/or orphaned, former street children. Wisdom In Rhyme's mission was to teach the children the power of their own words and help them to recognize their own voice within their hearts, as well as God's voice within them. As a team, our objective was to use the arts (dance, drama, singing, poetry). to bring healing and confidence to their hearts, minds, and spirits.
Filmed in the stunning botanical gardens of the Speke Resort in Munyono, Uganda as well as a remote village in Mpigi - this film captures not only the beauty of the land, but also the beauty of the people.
As two parallel stories unfold, it becomes apparent to a young poet searching for the freedom to fly, that she has a common deliverance with a street child named "Edward". Featuring special guest Benon Mugumbya and first time actor Edward Kayemba. Edward's life was transformed by Kitenge Africa Foundation, a grass-roots organization which aims to transform the lives of vulnerable and abandoned youth through strategic acts of compassion.

Wisdom In Rhyme was birthed on New Year’s Eve 2004 in my Harlem, New York apartment. I cried myself to sleep DESPERATELY SEEKING GOD for the PURPOSE of my life. HIS ANSWER came the next morning through a simple and unexpected response within my heart, “I AM A WRITER. WRITE WISDOM.” That day was the beginning of my JOURNEY as a Poet and a Writer... a journey of hearing GOD'S VOICE and experiencing HIS HEART. Many of these songs were birthed during times of UTTER BROKENNESS and difficulty. But his REVELATION OF LOVE sustained me, motivated me and REVIVED me. Someone recently asked me, “Jessica, where do you get all these words?” And the only appropriate response I have is ... “God's Spirit.” Truly, HE IS THE WRITER. I am thankful to be the vessel He chose to deliver THE MESSAGE. "
In the beginning ...
