The word “Kwanzaa” comes from the Swahili language but this annual winter observance began in America in 1966. Aiming for a positive message in the wake of the Watts riots, Dr. Maulana Karenga created a celebration of many African traditions. Our talk looks at the origins of the holiday, its growth over 50 years, and its relevance today. End with snacks and a spiced holiday drink from a Kwanzaa cookbook.
