Join The Village Project & Community Partners for Kwanzaa 2017
The Village Project presents its 13thth annual Kwanzaa celebration throughout San Francisco, with seven days of community events starting on Dec. 26th, running through January 1st. Striving to help heal our family, community and nation, each of the seven principles of Kwanzaa (the Nguzo Saba) will be highlighted. There will be 15 free celebrations in 7 different neighborhoods. Each hosting organization will present exciting and enriching cultural programs, intended to both entertain and engage the entire family. A spiritual ceremony – pouring of libations and honoring of ancestors will start each program and will be followed by a feast, live entertainment and the lighting of one of the seven candles of the Kinara. There will be plenty of artistic performances, food and community connectedness.
