Black Uhuru

Black Uhuru inspiration - Graffiti-BanksyReggae band from Kingston, Jamaica, originally called Uhuru, later it became Black Uhuru.

Uhuru is Swahili for freedom. Black Uhuru therefore stands for black freedom.

A liberal interpretation of the name's origins sometimes involves the character of Lieutenant Uhuru in SF series Star Trek, but this lieutenant's name actually is Uhura, not Uhuru.

Active: 1972-present, JAM
