The last several weeks have been a whirlwind of movement for Ujamaa! We went from Wakanda world ( a big THANKS to all the community who shopped our artisans' wares in February, looking fresh in and out of the theaters!) to packing up and heading down the hall of One Hope Square shortly after March began. In the between time, we painted every wall in our new suite with the help of an awesome group of volunteers and donations from community individuals and businesses. We are so very grateful for their generosity. Then we unpacked and began the reorganizing process, which is still taking our time. But we are open for business while working out some of the new details and kinks in actualizing our plan. Our new suite offers us the opportunity to serve our mission in some enhanced ways and we would love for you to come check it out at our:
Re-Grand Opening Celebration on
Thursday April 19, 2018 from 4-8 pm!
We are excited to announce that this is a joint celebration with Salon XO, owned by Monica Tillman Smith, our new neighbor who recently moved her healthy hair business from the Northside to the Hill District. Join us for some tasty refreshments, and enjoy a wellness treatment, hands-on art, storytelling, drumming and song, and the blessing of both of our spaces! See your smiling face in One Hope Square this week, or sometime soon. Be well!
P.S. Below our some images we took during the transformation of our new suite in One Hope Square!
