Kwanzaa Is Not ‘Black Christmas’—Here’s What It Actually Is (And How We Celebrate)



What is Kwanzaa? It is a nonreligious seven-day celebration that emphasizes family, culture and community. It starts the day after Christmas and and ends on January 1. Kwanzaa, pronounced “kwahn-zuh,” was founded by Dr. Maulana Karenga, a professor and chair, department of Africana studies, executive director of the African American Cultural Center, author and activist. And it is no coincidence that Dr. Karenga founded the holiday in 1966 in the midst of the Civil Rights movement. He believed it to be “an act of cultural recovery and reconstruction.”
