Storytellers and Poets

Umoja students are uniquely connected to others of African descent around the world. In Nzuri, we focus on noteworthy issues related to Umoja, and on poetic, fictional and non-fictional  stories that relate the modern experience of diaspora. In our Storytellers and Poets section, you can read about stories that matter: those that evoke the essence of the mind, body, and spirit.



In Perspectives, Nzuri features interviews, opinion articles, photography, and digital media content. In Umoja Community, we deeply value the intentional, deliberate and purposeful. We welcome discourse about conscious choices and practice in addition to other issues of importance to Nzuri readers.
