    Kwanzaa Live! with Culture Queen

    Title:Kwanzaa Live! with Culture Queen
    Date & Time:Sat Dec 7, 2013 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
    Location:Alexandria Black History Museum, 902 Wythe St. (Map This)
    Event Details:The Alexandria Black History Museums Annual Kwanzaa Celebration will host Kwanzaa expert Jessica “Culture Queen” Smith, as she teaches a fresh approach to celebrating Kwanzaa through fun games, songs, dances and hands-on crafts. Participants will learn ideas to help them incorporate Kwanzaa into their own family celebrations.

    Founded by Dr. Maulana Karenga in 1966, Kwanzaa is the 7 day African American festival that celebrates culture, family and community from December 26 to January 1. Kwanzaa highlights seven traditional principles; umoja (unity), kujichagulia (self-determination), ujima (collective work and responsibility), ujamaa (cooperative economics), nia (purpose), kuumba (creativity), and imani (faith), which parents may use to teach children positive community engagement.

    Culture Kingdom Kids™ is an educational arts company that produces children’s programs that celebrate African-American culture and history. Jessica Smith is the creative director for company and has worked with the Alexandria Black History Museum for several years on children’s programs at the Museum.
