Founded in 1970, the Kuumba Singers of Harvard College is an organization that prides itself not only in the current music and work we do, but in the legacy created by our past predecessors. This family, this community, prides itself on the bonds that it creates. The word “Kuumba” is a Swahili verb which means “to create”. This word embodies our mission: To proudly and unapologetically express the creativity and spirituality of black people. We come to take this to mean doing what we can, with what we have, in order to leave a space better than when we inherited it. This is the vision and in a sense, the essence of the Kuumba Singers.
