Happy Kwanzaa! Habari gani? Umoja.
We hope that those who are celebrating Kwanzaa have a beautiful time with your loved ones.
Kwanzaa celebrations reinforce the best of African American culture and serve to give this community a sense of pride and connectedness. There are 7 days of focusing on key principles and shared meals with a variety of foods. The Seven Principles are unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. We hope you will use some of these digital resources to learn more about African American culture and history. Kwanzaa begins December 26th and ends January 1st.
