Inter-generational in scope, From Afros To Shelltoes' cultural productions fearlessly bridge generation gaps between youth, elders, and hip hop heads. Side stepping traditional visions of leadership, From Afros To Shelltoes (FATS) remixes popular education, southern grandma tales, and good old common sense into a progressive series of cultural programs advocating practical strategies for social change, personal development, and emotional healing.

Garnes, Jr., with Sugar Johnson riding shotgun, FATS is a community arts collective delivering educational, counseling, and event planning services, namely, identity focused workshops, panels, townhall meetings, seminars, and artist residencies.
