Kwanzaa Festival 2012


What is Kwanzaa?


Kwanzaa means “first fruits of the harvest,” is a time to celebrate African American people, our ancestors and our culture. We seek to honor our past, evaluate our present and commit ourselves to a more productive future. Africans and African-Americans of all religious faiths and backgrounds celebrate Kwanzaa.
