Activities

Umoja Group’s annual events for the past twenty five years have been Kwanzaa celebration, Malcolm X Forum, and the African American Cultural, Family and Community Festival, known as the Umoja Festival.

 

Beautification

From 1994 to 1998, E.E.Smith students of T.E.A.M (Together Everyone Achieves More) club developed, then helped repainted the Wall of Honor, the mural on the corner of Murchison Road and Slater Avenue. Through Fayetteville Community Development beautification grants to Herbie Dawson and Ronald Vaughn the Community garden came into existence. Presently, Umoja Group volunteers maintain the ‘Wall of Honor’ and the Community Flower Garden. In September 2014 Ms. Priscilla A. Simpson volunteered as consultant to enhance the community flower garden.

Scholarship

Since 1998 UMOJA Group Inc., has been awarding one-time monetary scholarship to E.E. Smith High School attendance area /neighborhood graduating seniors. Umoja Group members are most proud of this annual financial giving to help the serving area youth further their education.
