Episode 10 - NUSD Celebrates Diversity: Learning about Kwanzaa
As part of the Natomas Unified’s Core Value of valuing diversity, equity, and inclusion, we wanted to share with the Natomas community the history and importance of Kwanzaa which begins December 26 through January 1st.
Kwanzaa was first created in 1966 by activist Dr. Maulana Karenga, based on African harvest festival traditions from parts of Africa. It is a non-secular holiday and a way for community members of African descent to honor their history and traditions. We invite you to listen to this podcast with Minister Imhotep Alkebulan, who is well known for leading Kwanzaa celebrations in the Sacramento region.
