Days to go:
Kwanzaa is an African American and Pan African celebration of family, community, and culture. It is a week-long cultural festival from December 26th to January 1st. Kwanzaa was initially established to unite African Americans with their African roots and heritage. Nguzo Saba is a collection of seven principles that guide the holiday. They are central to Kwanzaa as a different principle is emphasized each day during the celebration. Celebrants often dress in traditional Pan-African clothing and decorate their homes with African artwork. Kwanzaa was created in 1965 by Dr. Maulana Karenga, a major figure in the Black Power movement. Dr. Karenga’s intention was to provide African Americans with a link to their ancestral heritage. Karenga aimed to bring African Americans together as a community by combining various aspects of other celebrations such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and African Yam Festivals.
