Kuumba was established in 1970 by Black students at Harvard who sought to create a space in which they could celebrate their creativity and spirituality. In an era of “Black Power” and Black pride, immediately following the 1968 assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. the choir emerged as a source of community, spiritual inspiration, political motivation and cultural stimulation among the small but growing number of Black students at Harvard. The group chose the name “Kuumba” (Swahili for “creativity”) because it best captured the choir’s intent to reflect the creative genius of Black people through the rich diversity of Diasporic music and cultural expression.
Our Dr. S. Allen Counter Christmas Concert is a celebration of the spiritual wealth of this mission. We invite you to join us as we celebrate the season!
