    Kwanzaa is an African American Holiday celebrated from the 26th of December to the 1st of January. WorldBeat Center will be celebrating 5 of the 7 days of Kwanzaa with Master of Ceremonies, TUKUFU KALONJI. Kwanzaa is based on the agricultural celebrations of Africa called “the first-fruits” celebrations which were times of harvest, in gathering, reverence, commemoration, re-commitment and celebration.


    Kwanzaa is a celebration that has its roots in the black nationalist movement of the 1960s, and was established as a means to help African Americans reconnect with their African cultural and historical heritage by uniting in meditation and study of African traditions and Nguzu Saba, the "seven principles of African Heritage" which Karenga said "is a communitarian African philosophy".

    Martin Luther King Jr. was born on January 15, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia. King, both a Baptist minister and civil-rights activist, had a seismic impact on race relations in the United States, beginning in the mid-1950s. Among many efforts, King headed the SCLC. Through his activism, he played a pivotal role in ending the legal segregation of African-American citizens in the South and other areas of the nation, as well as the creation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. King received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, among several other honors. King was assassinated in April 1968, and continues to be remembered as one of the most lauded African-American leaders in history.
