Who We Are

UHURU is an award-winning magazine that aims to promote innovation, creativity, and culture through the voice of marginalized students on the Kent State University campus. Having a history of pan-African teachings and values, UHURU magazine focuses on the plight of all students around the globe.

Uhuru, which is Kiswahili for ‘freedom,’ serves as a platform for student creation and expression in art, writing, photography  and graphic design, while discussing racial, social and/or political ignorance.

As a derivative of Black Unites Students, this publication is dedicated to disseminating knowledge of the African-American experience in the past, present and future.

Although we focus on the unification of the African-American population, we also serve as a safe haven for other people of color, as we reflect all people of color at Kent State University.
