NZO: African Styles at Home and Abroad

Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles is looking for volunteers to sew African fabric pillow cases and seat covers as part of our new line "NZO furnishings". And we are looking for artistic volunteers who can paint furniture and stencils on furniture.

We are part of the non-profit the African People's Education and Defense Fund and the money we raise at the store goes directly to programs for self-determination in the African community including our upcoming Uhuru Health Festival on Saturday, April 28th, 7911 MacArthur Blvd., Oakland from 11- 4pm. (Volunteers needed for this too! Interested? Let us know!)

NZO is an African word that means home and we are incorporating African culture through traditional and modern African fabrics and painted designs into the furniture pieces we sell as a way of reinforcing our mission of defending the civil and human rights of the African community as well as creating beautiful and unique, one-of-a-kind pieces for our customers!

We need people who can sew or paint! Please contact us!

Mission Statement

The African People's Education and Defense Fund strives to develop and institutionalize programs to defend the human and civil rights of the African community and to address the grave disparities in education, health, healthcare and economic development of the African community.


Uhuru Furniture and Collectibles is a non-profit store that is a fundraiser for black community empowerment programs of APEDF. We receive a truck load of donated furniture and household items every day. This is a lively, popular Grand Lake area store staffed mostly by volunteers. When you volunteer at Uhuru Furniture, you not only contribute to the success of the store, you become part of a larger movement for peace through social justice. People shop at Uhuru Furniture for low priced, top quality items and to support crucial programs for social justice for African people.
