KWANZAA

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kwanzaa (or Kwaanza) is a week-long Pan-African festival primarily honoring African-American heritage.[1] It is observed from December 26 to January 1 each year, almost exclusively in the United States of America.

Kwanzaa consists of seven days of celebration, featuring activities such as candle-lighting and pouring of libations, and culminating in a feast and gift-giving. It was created by Ron Karenga, and first celebrated from December 26, 1966, to January 1, 1967. Karenga calls Kwanzaa the African American branch of "first fruits" celebrations of classical African cultures.
