Join the staff of African American Research Library and Cultural Center for the virtual Celebration of Kwanzaa. Learn the 7 Principles of Kwanzaa on December 26. This Kwanzaa event will feature several workshops geared toward each principle. We will begin to explore the importance of coming together and developing a community five year plan for 2021- 2026.
