With Kwanzaa well underway, a weekend celebration of this cultural holiday is taking place in West Philadelphia.
The African American community celebrated the beginning of Kwanzaa Thursday night.
December 26th marks the first day of Kwanzaa, and community groups in Philadelphia are gearing up for a big celebration on Saturday.
It’s a special Kwanzaa celebration on the 5th day of the cultural holiday.
The African American Cultural and Arts Center and Museum in Camden held its 10th annual Kwanzaa Celebration on Monday to mark the first of the seven principles of the holiday.
Kwanzaa is a seven-day African-American holiday that celebrates the accomplishments of Africans in America and all across the world.
The African American Museum in Philadelphia will hold three Kwanzaa celebrations this week, for the first time, starting on the first day at the Museum at 7th and Arch, and then on Wednesday and Thursday at the Gallery at Market East.
