About Kwanzaa

Dr. Maulana Karenga created Kwanzaa in 1966 as an African American and Pan-African holiday which celebrates family, community and culture. Commemorated from Dec. 26 through Jan. 1, its origins are in the first harvest celebrations of Africa from which it takes its name. The holiday is based on seven basic values of African culture called the Nguzo Saba, which in Swahili means the Seven Principles. The History Center's annual Kwanzaa Celebration, held on one of the 7 days of Kwanzaa in December, have featured music, African dance and drums, storytelling, fashion shows, craft activities and other activities.
