BSA Hosts Kwanzaa Dinner Nov. 20
Albion College celebrates Kwanzaa with Black Student Alliance (BSA), this Sunday November 20, at 4 p.m. in the Kellogg Center. African and African cuisine and entertainment will be featured along with a Kwanzaa ceremony.
Kwanzaa is an African-American celebration of cultural reaffirmation, established more than 40 years ago. Kwanzaa, which means "first fruits of the harvest" in Swahili, is a spiritual, festive and joyous celebration of the oneness and goodness of life, which claims no ties to any religion. It’s celebrated for seven days, and has seven guiding principles, Umoja (unity), Kujichagulia (self-determiniation), Ujima (collective work and responsibility), Ujamaa (cooperative economics) , Nia (purpose(, Kuumba (creativitiy), and last but not least Imani (fath).
