Celebrate Kwanzaa at the George Washington Carver Museum

Wednesday, December 20, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano

The holidays are (finally!) within reach, and the George Washington Carver Museum will take part by hosting a Dec. 29 Kwanzaa Celebration from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Kwanzaa is a weeklong holiday that begins on Dec. 26. The celebration of the holiday honors African heritage in the Americas, with each day celebrating a different community principle. The celebration at the museum is on the day that focuses on Ujamaa, or cooperative economics. According to a press release from the city, the principle “emphasizes ‘cooperative economics and encourages the building and maintaining of our own stores, shops and businesses, and to profit from them together.’ This Kwanzaa celebration is free, and open to the public. To RSVP, please call 512-974-4926.”
