Harambee

Harambee group photoHarambee is a cultural student organization of Kent State University founded in the 1970's by a group of African American Students who had a desire to establish cultural awareness and connect to the black community through art, service and the Seven Principles of Kwanzaa. Meaning “Let’s Pull Together” in Key Swahili, Harambee seeks to be active in the community, promote self expression and creativity through a variety of artistic events. In the past, Harambee has allowed Kent State Students to express themselves on the microphone by hosting Open Mic events. Harambee had also be proficient in bringing programs to Kent State University’s campus such as the The King of the Mic Freestyle battles and The College Kick Off program for high school students. Harambee also seals a lot with the community; working with the King Kennedy Center, Habitat for Humanity, and the Urban league. It is Harambee’s goal to create avenues where students as well as the community can express themselves through their artistic abilities.
