What is Kwanzaa?
Kwanzaa is a unique African American celebration with focus on the traditional African values of family, community responsibility, commerce and self improvement. It is simply a time of reaffirming African- American people, their ancestors and culture. Which means first fruits of the harvest in the African language kiswahill. Founded in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga; Kwanzaa has come to be observed by more than 18 million people worldwide.
• Kuumba(creativity)is greatly encouraged. Gifts are usually exchanged between parents and children and traditionally given on January 1st the last day of Kwanzaa. However gift giving during Kwanzaa may occur at any time.
