Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Yellow Springs Kwanzaa Planning Committee has announced that this year’s community event will take place Saturday, Dec. 30, 6–8 p.m., at the John Bryan Community Center gym.

The program will include remarks on each of the seven Kwanzaa principles, performances by area artists and the Nguzo Saba (the seven Kwanzaa principles) 2023 Award presentation.  A potluck meal will follow.

Kwanzaa is a seven-day celebration Dec. 26 through Jan. 1. Developed in the 1960s by scholar-activist Maulana Karenga, it draws on harvest festival traditions from West and Southeast Africa. The seven Kwanzaa principles are aligned with each of the seven days of the celebration and are: Umoja (unity), Kujichagulia (self-determination), Ujima (collective work and responsibility), Ujamaa (cooperative economics), Nia (purpose), Kuumba (creativity) and Imani (faith).
