Event Description

Kwanzaa is a celebration held across the United States and in other nations of the African Diaspora. It is observed from December 26 to January 1, culminating in a feast and gift-giving. Kwanzaa celebrates what its founder, Dr. Maulana Karenga, called the seven principles of Kwanzaa, or Nguzo Saba, consisting of what he called "the best of African thought and practice in constant exchange with the world." Each of the seven days of Kwanzaa is dedicated to one of the following principles: Umoja (Unity), Kujichagulia (Self-Determination), Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility), Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics), Nia (Purpose), Kuumba (Creativity), and Imani (Faith). This year, things are going to be a little different, but the amazing quality of dance performances and good storytelling will still be the same! Following the celebration, tune in to “Meet the Choreographers” via Zoom.
