Join us for the Museum’s 2017 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. Featuring gospel-infused tunes from the heavyweight champions of a cappella, The Persuasions, the flare and pageantry of the Brooklyn United Marching Band, and an electric performance by Vy Higginsen’s Sing Harlem Choir. Hosted by Dr. Linda H. Humes, scholar and storyteller.
