Join us for the Museum’s annual Kwanzaa event, a celebration of African-American heritage that is rooted in seven principles known as Nguzo Saba, which promote unity, culture, and community development. This year's celebration will feature live musical performances, a drum call procession, and a local artisan marketplace. Kwanzaa is hosted by Linda H. Humes, scholar and storyteller.


Support for Kwanzaa 2019 is provided, in part, by the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc. and the family of Frederick H. Leonhardt.

Kwanzaa 2019 is co-presented by Community Works and New Heritage Theatre Group.

The Kwanzaa marketplace is organized by the Harlem Arts Alliance.
