Mission Statement

Uhuru Furniture and Collectibles is a project of the African People's Education and Defense Fund (APEDF). APEDF 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 Philadelphia 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.

Great Organization! Truly wanted volunteers to get involved in many different ways and definitely showed great appreciation for whatever help I could give them. I mainly did Graphic Design work for this organization.

I have been to the store and purchased items, it's a great way to help and now that I am retired I would like to contribute my skills as an organizer and some knowledge of antiques and collectables to your organization.
