Umoja Karamu

Columbus State is partnering with Crazy Faith Ministries to host the 2nd Annual Umoja Karamu on November 19th at 6pm in the Conference Center Ballroom on the 4th Floor of the Workforce Development Center.

Umoja Karamu, or "unity feast" in Swahili, is a celebration that chronicles 5 periods of African American history and in includes select readings, musical selections, symbolic foods, and dance performances. This year we will also be collecting toys for Angel Tree, an organization that provides holiday presents to children of incarcerated parents.

This event is free and open to the public. Please contact Brett Welsh at for more information.
