UJIMA: Collective Work and Responsibility at the University of Michigan

Tuesday, November 23, 2021
10:00 AM-4:00 PM
G648 Haven Hall Map
This exhibit focuses on the concept of Ujima (collective work and responsibility in Swahili) as it pertains to activism on the campus of the University of Michigan over the years. By seeing how collective actions can lead to powerful movements, the exhibit presents a chronological display demonstrating the importance of calling for change. 
The majority of photos and articles originate from campus resources, including the Bentley Historical Library, the Michigan Daily's archives and other original materials. 
UJIMA is dedicated to the students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the University of Michigan who envisioned and exemplified the principle of Ujima to bring about a more equitable and inclusive university through their thoughts and actions. 
There is also a virtual audio/visual tour of the exhibit which can be accessed
