Nguzo Saba: Kwanzaa Demonstration

Join us on Thursday, December 29, from 6:30 - 8 p.m. for a Kwanzaa demonstration put on by the Wayne County Multicultural Arts Project, Inc. The evening will feature dance performances by Youth Inspiration, storytelling, food, fellowship, and fun. Chase's Calendar of Events defines Kwanzaa as an "American black family observance created in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga in recognition of traditional African harvest festivals. This seven-day festival stresses unity of the black family, with a harvest feast (karamu) on the first day and a day of meditation on the final one. Kwanzaa means 'first fruit' in Swahili." Come learn more about it!
