The name means "a place of joyful meeting," aptly describing this African-American cultural center. – The Scene
Founded in 1915 by social workers Russell and Rowena Jeliffe, Karamu House was committed to interracial artistic productions at a time when theaters and other public institutions were segregated. There are actually two theaters at the site, as well as a small cabaret, exhibit galleries and classrooms. The annual program includes theater for young audiences and classes for preschoolers to teens in drama, theater, dance and music.

Learning Experience

Especially active in the schools and child-development fields, Karamu maintains a popular summer day camp that runs seven weeks and offers offers a broad program in arts and culture for various age groups. Classes include storytelling, arts&crafts, creative movement, African Dance, ceramics, airbrush art, and even social etiquette.

At the end of every year, Karamu House stages its Cleveland author Langston Hughes' popular play, "Black Nativity," in all its splendor and spirited style, as a holiday treat.
