Hayti Kwanzaa

 

Hayti Kwanzaa kicks off the week-long Kwanzaa festivities in the Triangle. Kwanzaa is a 7-day celebration of family, community, and culture observed from December 26 through January 1. Co-sponsors – Shabutaso Inc. and Hayti Heritage Center – bring the community together under Kwanzaa’s first day and principle – Umoja – Ki-Swahili for Unity. The day-long event opens with a film showing of Kwanzaa documentary film, The Black Candle and closes with Winston Salem singing sensation, The Healing Force. Parenting, chess, music and dance workshops abound throughout the day for children and elders alike.
