Please introduce yourself and tell us one thing that makes you original.

Hello! My name is Rob Jackson, founder of Ujamaa Lighting, which is one of – if not the only – Black-owned LED light bulb companies in the United States! My background makes me very unique. Born and raised in southern Arkansas, I come from a low-income, single-parent household. I graduated from the University of Arkansas at Pine Blue, and HBCU (Historically Black College & University), with a degree in Computer Science, and went on to get an MBA from Eller College of Business at the University of Arizona. An introvert by nature, with a southern, Black upbringing, and my background in IT and business brings a unique, family-oriented originality to the Ujamaa Lighting brand! Even the name its “Ujamaa” is Swahili for “cooperative economics”, an idea that one’s community thrives when its people works together. The threads that make me who I am are what sets our company apart, and we strive to leverage that originality in every aspect of our products.
