Kuumba (pronounced “koo-oom-bah”) is a Swahili word meaning “to create” and expresses the choir’s mission to express the creativity and spirituality of Black people through song and other art forms, such as dance, poetry, and spoken word. Kuumba was founded in 1970 by Black Harvard undergraduates, and is the oldest existing Black organization at Harvard. Kuumba serves as a source for community and space to reflect on the creative genius of Black people through the rich diversity of Diasporic music and cultural expression. Today, Kuumba remains rooted in this mission as it continues to cultivate a space to celebrate Black creativity, spirituality, and culture at Harvard and beyond.
It is in celebration that we invite you to "We Come Through the Storm," our 47th Annual Dean Archie C. Epps Spring Concert.
Stand strong with us and enjoy a night of song, dance, spoken word, and defiant joy!
