Celebration of Family, Community, and Culture

In the first segment of ​this two-part workshop, we will introduce/reaffirm Kwanzaa's origin, its link to African Celebrations, and the Nguzo Saba (The 7 Principles) based on the book by  Dr. Maulana Karenga, the Creator of Kwanzaa, 

Attendees will make a quilt square with the Nguzo Saba and symbols to add to their family Kwanzaa decorations.
This will be a 10"x 10" quilt square that you will be able to add to each year.

Learn all about Kwanzaa 

with Dr. Maulana Karenga

Kwanzaa is an African American and Pan-African holiday celebrated by millions throughout the world African community, Kwanzaa brings a cultural message which speaks to the best of what it means to be African and human in the fullest sense. Given the profound significance Kwanzaa has for African Americans and indeed, the world African community, it is imperative that an authoritative source and site be made available to give an accurate and expansive account of its origins, concepts, values, symbols, and practice.
