What is oo-JAH-mah ?
Ujamaa Collective is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded with a social mission to act as a catalyst to advance Africana Women by providing a fair trade marketplace for cultural, artistic and entrepreneurial exchange through cooperative economics in the Historic Hill District and beyond. “We lift as we climb.”
We are accomplishing this through our Hill District based artisan boutique, pop-up marketplace events, arts and entrepreneurship programming, and through our advocacy on health and wealth, including our passion for cooperatives, rooted in our values of meaningful work, creativity, community and wellness.
“And so, lifting as we climb, onward and upward we go, struggling and striving, and hoping that the buds and blossoms of our desires will burst into glorious fruition ere long.”
— Mary Church Terrell
