“Kwanzaa is an African-American holiday that honors black people and their history. It was created in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga to remind his people of their African beginnings. In creating it, he hoped to fashion a celebration that would teach history as it explored values and traditions that were important to the African-American people. The celebration is rich in symbols that help reinforce these values and traditions.  The celebration itself lasts from December 26 to January 1.”
