This special Outdoor Equity Alliance Kwanzaa Celebration at Grounds For Sculpture is on December 29th or Day 4 of Kwanzaa. The Fourth Principle of Kwanzaa, Ujamaa, means ‘Cooperative Economics’ — “To build our own businesses, control the economics of our own community, and share in all its work and wealth.”
Kwanzaa is a secular, non-religious, holiday, whose name translates from Swahili to “first fruits,” referencing the holiday’s roots in traditional harvest festivals. Instead of centering on religious traditions, Kwanzaa focuses on culture, community, and family. Kwanzaa is celebrated the 7 days from December 26 to January 1.
