Kwanzaa is a secular holiday that celebrates African and African American culture and history from Dec. 26th to January 1st. Each day, one of the 7 principles of Kwanzaa is represented.
On December 29 at 6pm, the Women of Color Giving Circle will hold their annual Kwanzaa celebration in collaboration with the Berkshire NAACP, Berkshire Black Economic Council, Clinton Church Restoration, and Westside Legends. The theme is Umoja—Unity.
The community is warmly invited to join us for a program that includes music by the Misty Blues Band and Warren Dews, the lighting of the candles, remarks from Malia Lazu, a social justice leader, entrepreneur, and lecturer in Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Strategic Management Group at the MIT Sloan School of Management, and more.
