Placer County Kwanzaa Celebration

Sunday, December 15, 2024 

More details coming soon!! 

Join us in pre-observance as we share and reflect about the seven principles of Kwanzaa, "matunda ya kwanza," meaning "first fruits" in Swahili. Students of the local Black Student Union high school clubs will present the principles along with the candle lighting ceremony. 

Bring your favorite potluck dish as we break bread at this community gathering following the ceremony. Kwanzaa is traditionally observed December 26 - January 1 culminating in a festive gathering known as the Karamu Ya Imani (Feast of Faith).
