What is Kwanzaa?
Established in 1966, Kwanzaa is a holiday based on the various “First Fruits Festivals” found around the African continent (Umkhosi among the Zulu, Incwala among the Swazi, Incwala among the Thonga, Odwira among the Ashanti,Eje among the Yoruba etc.).
The African American scholar, Dr. Maulana Karenga, together with other researchers, undertook studies to look at commonalities between celebrations around Africa.
Out of this research evolved the Kwanzaa holiday which is celebrated 26th December – 1st January by millions of African and African Descendant people around the world.
As the holiday draws on pan-African traditions, it serves as a unique opportunity for African people – regardless of faith, nationality, language and birthplace – to come together in unity.
