Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles

Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles is looking for volunteers who are interested / experienced / love to paint furniture. We will be using our Fusion Mineral Paints. These hand painted furniture pieces will be part of our latest NZO - African Styles at Home and Abroad line being sold in our Oakland store. Our volunteers will be painting at our historic Akwaaba Hall in East Oakland two Sunday's a month. We need volunteers for Sunday shifts 11 am to 3 pm. Training is included.

NZO is an African word that means home and and we are incorporating vibrant African designs into the furniture pieces that we sell at Uhuru Furniture. Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles is a non profit organization that strives to make African people economically self reliant.

Contact us today if interested or with questions.

Uhuru Furniture is an economic development institution of the non-profit organization, the African People’s Education and Defense Fund (APEDF.org). All proceeds raised above our operating expenses go to support programs defending the civil and human rights of the African community and bridging the grave disparities faced by the Black community in health, healthcare, economic development and education. That’s why we say that Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles is driven by African self-determination!
