Kwanzaa Celebration

Kwanzaa is a holiday to be appreciated and celebrated by all. While it was created, in part, for African Americans to celebrate and connect with African heritage and culture, it’s important that everyone recognizes and celebrates African cultural and historical heritage. In fact, modern Kwanzaa is intended to be a holiday celebration in addition — not alternative — to other religious holidays. In this spirit, Roots 101 African American Museum is opening its doors to the entire community. There will be traditional African dance and drumming, Zawadi Kids Crafting Corner, Ujamma Black Businesses Market, other activities and presentations, door prizes and soul food dishes from around the world. There will also be a lighting of the Kinara, in honor of African ancestors.

Saturday, Dec. 28
