Membership

We welcome you onto ground that is legendary and into space that summons joy—and pride. We welcome you to America's oldest Black producing theatre (read more about our history, here).

Now, you can join Karamu House—for the first time in our history—as a member.

Karamu House invites you to join us as we imagine new ways of doing theatre. Of elevating the African American voice and perspective through arts programming. Of inspiring and teaching others to imagine and create through arts education experiences. Of finding joy in being Black in America. Select the level of membership that is right for you.

For a limited time, all new Karamu House members will receive a commemorative, limited edition bumper sticker (or magnet, based on level) that recognizes the historic #BlackLivesMatter movement (see it, here).
