Kuumba Lynx (KL) is an Arts Education & Youth Development Organization founded in 1996 by three women, J. Villegas, L. Garcia, & J. Bullie.

Our Mission

KL has a mission of working to provide access to programs that preserve, promote and present urban arts & culture.

Empowerment

KL seeks to empower youth and their communities by employing Hip-Hop culture as both an art form & vehicle for intergenerational and cross-cultural dialogue.

Belief

KL believes in developing healthy hearts, minds, and bodies so that strong community foundations can thrive.

Creative Literacy

KL is dedicated to providing programs for creative expression & literacy for Chicago youth and their families so to increase social consciousness, community analysis & exchange,self-reflection, global action, inner peace, and universal freedom.

How We Do It

Our goal is currently achieved by providing a continuum of Hip Hop Arts Programming through Drop In Arts @ Clarendon, Arts Residencies and Workshops, Kuumba Lynx Performance/Production Ensemble (KLPE), and Community Cultural Events. KL programs push community reflection, critical thinking and the active exchanging of ideas.
