SPECIAL EVENT | Kwanzaa Celebrations 

Celebrate the African cultural holiday of Kwanzaa this year by taking part in a series of special events organized by the Rochester Kwanzaa Coalition. The theme of this year's celebration is "Black to the Future," which places special emphasis on the role of the black youth in carrying on the African cultural legacies. There will be events on each day of Kwanzaa (December 26-January 1) that revolve around the seven core principles of the holiday, known collectively as Nguzo Saba. Each day of Kwanzaa corresponds to one of these core principles and on each day there will be an event related to the themes and celebrations of that day. Activities include African dancing, storytelling, movie screenings, and readings from local authors. For more specific details about activities, schedules, and venues call 355-8888 or visit the Facebook page of the Rochester Kwanzaa Coalition at
