Description:

Sponsored by: For Members Only: Northwestern's Black Student Alliance (FMO) , Multicultural Student Affairs
Swahili for ‘pull together’, the term "Harambee" is most often used as a rallying cry in Kenya for people to come together in community and gather resources. While Swahili is one of thousands of languages spoken in Africa and throughout the African diaspora, here at Northwestern, we ‘pull together’ in the spirit of community, history, and approbation of African, Afro-Carribean, and African American culture. Bringing together students, staff, faculty and alumni, Harambee kicks off Black History Month and features a variety of performances, music and food for everyone to enjoy.
