The American Museum of Natural History has been hosting one of the country’s largest Kwanzaa celebrations for over 35 years. Held every December, this event is a celebration of African-American heritage that is rooted in seven principles known as Nguzo Saba, which promote unity, culture, and community development. Past celebrations have featured live performances, film screenings, and a local artisan marketplace and fun giveaways. Kwanzaa is not a religious holiday, nor is it only for African-Americans. Everyone is invited to learn about the rich cultural legacy and contemporary artistic expressions of the African-American community.
