The Fayette County PublicLibrary is pleased to bring the Kuumba Singers of Harvard College to the community March 13 at 4:30 p.m. This choral group is made up of nearly 40 talented students traveling through Atlanta to Alabama during their spring break from college.
Kuumba (pronounced koo-oom-bah) was founded in 1970 by Dennis Wiley and Fred Lucas and emerged as a source of community, spiritual inspiration and cultural stimulation among students at Harvard. Today, members of Kuumba reflect different cultural backgrounds but continue to support Kuumba’s mission.
One of Kuumba’s members, Arin Stowman is a Fayette County resident and graduate of McIntosh High School in Peachtree City. The library is proud to host Arin and Kuumba’s Open Rehearsal performance. Open Rehearsals are opportunities for members of the community to interact with the choir members and sing along with them. For those interested in learning more about Kuumba – go to their website at www.kuumbasingers.org.
The Fayette County Public Library is located at 1821 Heritage Way, Fayetteville. All workshops are free and open to the public.
