Savion Glover’s resume includes a Broadway debut at age ten, a Tony nomination at 15 (he won seven years later), four years on Sesame Street, and a PBS special at the White House. The Tap Dance Kid makes his Museum debut, as he brings in ‘da noise and ‘da funk for the Museum’s 36th annual Kwanzaa celebration! Artistic Director of Yaffa Cultural Arts Linda Humes hosts a dynamic, family-friendly program that will get your toes tapping and includes an exciting film screening, introduced by a special representative of the United Nations.

Support for Celebrate Culture programs is provided, in part, by  the Sidney, Milton and Leoma Simon Foundation, the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc.,  the family of Frederick H. Leonhardt, and The Max and Victoria Dreyfus Foundation. 

KWANZAA 2014: OUR BRIGHTEST LIGHTS and HERE WE STAND: HONOR BLACK HISTORY are co-presented by Community Works and New Heritage Theatre Group.

The Kwanzaa marketplace is organized by the Harlem Arts Alliance.
