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!

  1. Dear African blood brothers….I greet you all in the name of the mighty prophet MALCOM X, iam a Kenyan citizen by birth, i stay and live in Kenyan capital Nairobi and my love for MALCOM X will never end. Iam a BLACK NATIONALIST and in support of the SPIRIT OF AFRICAN BROTHERHOOD, it was the great MALCOM X who formed OAAU (Africa 6th Region) but was later killed, i believe that OAAU is there to stay because it directly connects to OAU ( Organization of African Unity ). I was mentored by my African blood brother in the spirit of African brotherhood from SOUTH AFRICA…..My spiritual father is from SOUTH AFRICA……He told me about MALCOM X and BLACK NATIONALISM, he told me about MARCUS GARVEY and the movement, i really honour and respect my SPIRITUAL FATHER and blood brother from the land of SOUTH AFRICA.
