Freedom House

Your Home Away From Home

Nyumburu Cultural Center

Nyumburu is our word for "freedom house", from the Swahili words "nyumba"(house) and "uhuru" (freedom). The Nyumburu Cultural Center has served the UM community since 1971 and continues to build on its foundations as the Center for black social, cultural and intellectual interaction. Nyumburu's productions and activities include lectures and seminars, art exhibits, workshops in the dramatic arts, dance, music and creative writing. Academic courses in blues, jazz, gospel music performance and creative writing are also offered.

We are dedicated to advancing and augmenting the academic and multicultural missions of the university by presenting a forum for scholarly exchange, as well as artistic engagement via the rich culture and history of the African Diaspora.
