Event Description

Support the power of literacy, celebrate Black History Month and join a community united for change at the annual Umoja 5K. This year’s theme is Race for Reading: The Power of Black Words. Let’s embrace the legacy of Black authors and their contributions to our culture and consciousness. As a people, we must commemorate not only the past and present Black excellence but also the transformative power of literature and literacy in our journey.

Umoja, the first principle of Kwanzaa, represents unity. The principle of Umoja highlights our need to strive for and maintain unity in the Black family, community, nation, and race. Throughout the challenges, we have come together in many ways as a people to fight for social, political, and economic justice.

Lets keep the momentum! Join this 5k walk/run, as we’re all responsible for each other as a community, and together we can achieve greatness and exemplify Black excellence. Allies are welcome!
