Reads for Kwanzaa!

Published on Fri, 12/27/2019 - 09:15am
Happy Kwanzaa

Wednesday, December 26, was the first day of Kwanzaa, a weeklong holiday that pays tribute to African heritage and culture. During Kwanzaa, seven core principles are emphasized: unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. Throughout the week, candles are lit in representation of these seven values. Kwanzaa often culminates with the exchange of gifts and a great feast.

In honor of this special holiday, here are a few Kwanzaa books in Mid-Continent Public Library’s collection:
