The Umoja Black Community Engagement Program is a recently established, student led program at Carleton University. Umoja is a Swahili word that means “unity”. When founding the program, our team handpicked this name to represent our dedication to this Pan-Africanist principle in the struggle against anti-Black racism. Umoja is committed to empowering African, Caribbean, and Black (ACB) communities through knowledge and collaboration.
The design was created by Carleton undergraduate student, Teju Oladipo. All proceeds from the sale of these shirts will go towards the Umoja Student Bursary Fund for Carleton African, Caribbean and Black students who are going through financial difficulties during their academic journey and to supporting Umoja’s African, Caribbean, and Black students programming at Carleton University.
