Harambee

Harambee

Harambee is a Kenyan tradition of community events that encourages people to collaborate. A Swahili term that means “all pull together,” Harambee helps us remember that we are part of a community. The event celebrates women of color who have challenged, shaped, and changed the world through such disciplines as the arts, literature, political activism, and science. Students dance, sing, read from original poetry, and perform dramatic scenes. When we celebrate Harambee at Marymount, we remember how important it is to gather together and pull together as a group, as a school, and as a family.
