Event Details

Design and decorate a Kwanzaa Banner for your home or as a Kwanzaa gift

Kwanzaa is an African American and Pan-African celebration based on the agricultural harvest celebrations of Africa called “First Fruits,” which are times of harvest, ingathering, reverence, commemoration, recommitment, and celebration! Harvest Festivals are celebrated all over Africa and  are filled with lots of music, singing, and dancing, with dancers adorned in traditional masks and costumes, some of what you will see in our museum collection.

Kwanzaa’s Creator, Dr. Maulana Karenga created the celebration to introduce and reinforce seven basic values of African culture which contribute to building and reinforcing community among African American people, as well as Africans throughout the world African community. Kwanzaa is celebrated by millions throughout the African Diaspora and beyond from December 26th – Jan 1st. It celebrates Family, Community, and Culture. Join us as we share more about the celebration, the African symbols & their origin, and design/decorate your personalized Kwanzaa banners.
