Kwanzaa Celebration will welcome families to celebrate the holidays by making their own gifts and enjoying live music, art activities, storytelling for children, and food. The celebration will be held outside on the museum grounds.
This year, local families and youth will add their personal reflections to the celebration. To demonstrate Umoja (Unity), seven local families, comprising three generations, will share their perspectives on the seven principles. To demonstrate Nia (Purpose), Ms. T from the Delray Beach Library-On-The-Go will host story time for the children and will read “Seven Spools of Thread” by Angela S. Medearis. Demonstrating Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility), youth will create an African-inspired dwelling and decorate the interior walls with their own artwork; and demonstrating Kuumba (Creativity), Spady Museum’s Kuumba Village will be ready to help guests create gifts to give or keep.
The Kwanzaa Celebration is hosted by Spady Cultural Heritage Museum, Inc. in collaboration with the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., the Sankofa Study Group, Pyramid Books, and Kwanzaa 365 Live.
