KARAMU HOUSE - Recognized as the oldest African American performing arts institute in the nation, Karamu House is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and featured in the Smithsonian’s African American Museum. Legendary artists including Langston Hughes, Ruby Dee, Robert Guillaume, Ron O’Neal, Bill Cobbs, James Pickens, Jr., S. Epatha Merkerson, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Debra Bryd, and Imani Hakim have been associated with the 107-year old “place of joyful gathering” (the meaning of “Karamu” in Swahili). Karamu’s mission is to produce professional theatre, provide arts education and present community programs for all people while honoring the African American experience. As a non-profit organization, Karamu House depends on the support of its donors and patrons to continue its rich legacy of providing unique, and culturally and socially responsive programming.
