Kanye West’s Donda’s House Officially Changes Name
Much has happened since then, with shots being fired on both sides of the conflict. Tweets were exchanged, and histories were revealed , until the whole thing came to a breaking point, and Rhymefest and the
other Donda’s House members decided to separate from Kanye entirely.
Today, according to Pitchfork, Donda’s House revealed the results of their re-branding. From now on, the organization will be referred to as “Arts of Culture, Inc.”
While the non-profit may have removed Donda’s name from their organization, they said in a statement that they still stand by her ideals.
“We will always respect the memory and example set by Dr. Donda’s West,” said Donnie Smith, one of the founders of the organization.
“We revere her work and were fortunate to have been taught by her. As we continue our work, we hope that this name change will represent an evolution of the organization and will result in more
service and greater impact.”
“Over the last few months, due to Mr. West’s controversial public political statements, the organization received communications of concern from sponsors, foundations and supporters. Students,
alumni, volunteers and staff of the group met Saturday to discuss recent developments and the future of the organization,” the organization said in a press release.
“The group decided that the organization will maintain its mission, but will have a new name both to avoid confusion and honor the stated wishes of the West family.”
