Voice of the People

Uhuru is an award-winning magazine that aims to promote innovation, creativity, and culture through the voice of marginalized students on the Kent State University campus. Having a history of Pan-African teachings and values, Uhuru magazine focuses on the plight of all students around the globe.

Uhuru, which is Kiswahili for ‘freedom,’ serves as a platform for student creation and expression in art, writing, photography and graphic design, while discussing racial, social and/or political ignorance.
