Become a Spark!

sparkler-143025_1920A community once forged by the fire of the arts is once again galvanizing around aesthetics, collaboration and creativity. Kuumba Community Arts uses the strengths of the Ensley/Tuxedo Community to equip students to become creative, collaborative partners in the advancement of their education and in their personal lives. Creativity or Kuumba is a principle of Kwanzaa that says, “do always as much as we can, in the way that we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than it was when we inherited it”. This is the foundation on which Kuumba Community Arts builds.
