Kwanzaa Celebration: Kujichagulia
You are invited to learn about and celebrate Kwanzaa. This event will feature a performer and light refreshments.
The word "Kwanzaa" comes from the Swahili phrase "matunda ya kwanza," meaning "first fruits." Kwanzaa begins on December 26 and ends with a communal feast called the Karamu on January 1.
Kwanzaa is a seven-day holiday that celebrates Family, Community and Culture. The seven days of Kwanzaa match the seven principles celebrated during the days. These are ideas that triumph the idea of community and individualism.
Thursday, December 27th we will explore the principle of Kujichagulia (self-determination)
Self Determination allows one to define one’s self and community. Self Determination also involves the celebration of creations of the past and present African American.
