ABOUT KARAMU HOUSE
In 1915, Oberlin College graduates Russell and Rowena Jelliffe opened the Playhouse Settlement in a Cleveland area called The Roaring Third. The Jelliffes wanted to build an environment where people of different races, religions, and social and economic backgrounds could come together to seek and share common ventures through the arts, and Karamu House was established as a gathering place for racially-diverse members of the surrounding community at that time. As the community became predominantly African American, Karamu responded with programs geared to their needs and interests.
Compensation will be commensurate with the experience and competitive with similar positions throughout the region. The range of benefits include medical, paid time off, and a 403 (b) retirement plan.
