According to Wikapedia - Kwanzaa is a week-long celebration held in the United States and also celebrated in the Western African Diaspora in other nations of the Americas. The celebration honors African heritage in African-American culture, and is observed from December 26 to January 1, culminating in a feast and gift-giving.[1] Kwanzaa has seven core principles (Nguzo Saba). It was created by Maulana Karenga, and was first celebrated in 1966–67.

This week we tackle the question; Is Kwanzaa a Real Holiday? and talked about the components of Kwanzaa with Jessica Smith; the founder and director of Culture Kingdom Kids™, a creative arts company that produces educational children’s programs that celebrate African-American cultures. Since 2010, Culture Kingdom Kids has promoted cultural heritage and awareness values through fun and interactive performances and workshops at schools, festivals, community centers and museums
