Starting December 26th, Kwanzaa will begin and families across the country will celebrate African American culture, traditions, and community. You may have always heard of this special day, but never really known what it meant or how to begin celebrating it! You don’t even have to be an African American to celebrate Kwanzaa, it’s simply a great way to show your appreciation for the African American community, plus family traditions, blessings, and more.
This famous holiday was founded in 1965 by graduate student Maulana Karenga. He believed that the African American people needed an annual holiday to celebrate their differences, so that they could grow strong as a whole, strengthen their collective self-concepts as a people, honor their past, critically evaluate their present, and commit themselves to a fuller, more productive future.
