Celebrating Our Cultural Harvest

KwanzaaCelebrated between Dec. 26 and Jan. 1, Kwanzaa is a joyous and meaningful holiday that gives African American an opportunity to reunite with family and friends and to pay tribute to their rich cultural heritage.

Here is a comprehensive guide that explains the traditional ceremonies, foods, and history of Kwanzaa. Offers an introduction to the cultural foundations of Kwanzaa, practical tips on how to tailor celebrations to individual circumstances, and directions on how to hold a Karamu feast, as well as recipes.

Also includes an explanation of the seven principles of Kwanzaas. Includes: the philosophy behind each principle; profiles of successful African American who represent the principles of Kwanzaa; inspirational quotations and proverbs; and folktales new and old. Illustrations.

“In this work, which is helpful in understanding the custom, Riley has illuminated each Kwanzaa principle with chapters replete with poetry, life stories of noted personalities who have benefited from using that particular system, quotations, folktales, and proverbs,” writes Ann Burns in a review for Library Journal. “A good source, especially for young adult collections.”
