Happy KWanzaa

What is Kwanzaa?

This year, Kwanzaa began on Thursday, December 26 and will end on January 1st of 2020. 

Kwanzaa is an African-Americans celebration of life from 26 December to 1 January. Dr. Maulana Karenga introduced the festival in 1966 to the United States as a ritual to welcome the first harvests to the home. Dr. Karenga created this festival for Afro-Americans as a response to the commercialism of Christmas.


January 20th is Martin Luther King Jr. Day

With Black History Month one month away, Martin Luther King Day will be right there to warm us up to it in the last part of January 2020.
