A representative from the African American Museum of Arts will explain the history and principles of Kwanzaa from 5 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 27, at the DeLand Regional Library, 130 E. Howry Ave.
Kwanzaa, which is celebrated from Dec. 26 through Jan. 1, is a nonreligious holiday that honors African-American culture. It is symbolized by the kinara, which holds seven candles – one black, three red and three green – that represent the people, the struggle and the future. Each day is dedicated to seven principles: unity, self-determination, collective responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith.
Registration is not required for this free program. For more information, call 386-822-6430, ext. 20762.
