Saturday, December 30, 2017
Time:
4:00PM TO 9:00PM
Location: Malcolm X Center (3448 EVANS ST)

Kwanzaa is a week-long celebration held all over the world by Africans, African Americans and the African Diaspora, celebrated by millions throughout the world African community, and is observed from December 26 to January 1, culminating in a feast and gift-giving. It was first celebrated in 1966 and we have organized a free community event to spread the awareness and encourage others to learn about the 7 principles of Kwanzaa and to apply to their daily lives.

On December 30th the 5th principle, Nia, is observed, which means Purpose in Swahili.

The Urban Flag Football League, Urban Rifle Association, Terry Muhammad’s Study Group, James Henley, and Lutfiyah Salaam have joined forces and have dedicated this event to acknowledging, celebrating, and empowering the black woman and her purpose/value to our community.

Join us in a celebration of Community and Culture! With live performances, music, dance, poetry, narratives, and a feast!
