Kwanzaa is about honouring one's family

"Kwanzaa doesn't focus on material elements. It isn't about buying. It's about using what you have available. It's not about spending money. It's about honoring your family," said Audrey Davis, assistant director/curator for the Alexandria Black History Museum. Davis was talking about of the week-long celebration known as Kwanzaa, which begins on Dec. 26....

"Dr. Maulana Karenga created Kwanzaa in 1966 in the midst of the Black Freedom Movement as a way for African Americans to reaffirm their heritage and culture as well as their bonds to one another as a community."

"A local theatre company has been working diligently for the past couple of weeks as they continue to set up for their upcoming show that takes place in a new venue. Mixed Magic Theatre will present its 7th annual production of A Kwanzaa Song." For more information on Kwanzaa, visit here.
