The “Jam” was originally the reunion of Black and Latino men and women enrolled as undergraduates at Barnard College and Columbia College in the 1960s and 1970s who became the “foundational classes” on whose shoulders subsequent generations of students of color stand.

The Summer 2016 Alumni Reunion Jam is open to all Columbia University alumni from all schools and affiliates from all generations.

The mission of the Barnard-Columbia Jam is to forever honor the legacy of the foundational classes of color, and to extend a welcoming hand in fellowship to alumnae of all affiliated schools and classes, particularly those of shared ancestry.

Jam events and reunions expand and uplift the cultural, educational, ethnic and economic diversity at Barnard and Columbia as well as our global community beyond the gates, and, we party – we rejoice in the spirit of love and support that made this once small, yet vital minority community larger than life in the history of Columbia University in the City of New York.

Kamoinge, a pioneering photographic collective, was formed in New York in over 50 years ago  to address the under-representation of black photographers in the art world. Kamoinge’s body of work spans the past 50 and included numerous images of daily life in black America in New York City during the last half of the twentieth century.
