Kwanzaa Celebration continues in Miami on Fri. 12/30

On Friday, December 30, 2011 the Miami-Dade Chapter of the FAMU National Alumni Association and Community Builders Holistic Development Corporation will present the 22nd Annual Mary Williams Woodard Legacy Kwanzaa Celebration. This is the Miami-Dade Chapter's signature event as they give back to the South Florida community. They are pleased to continue their longstanding partnership with Community Builders and their Osun’s Village & African Caribbean Cultural Arts Corridor Project in presenting this important event.

Several international and local performing artists are expected to participate. The children’s groups from the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center are always a delight. This year, a parade of African and African-inspired fashions has been added so wear your finest if you are so inclined. A special call is being made to natural hair wearing brothers and sisters. So rock your Locs, Twists, Braids and Afros for the Natural Hair Showcase.

This is an uplifting, family bonding, community building event celebrating: Unity; Self-Determination; Collective Work & Responsibility; Cooperative Economics; Purpose; Creativity; and Faith! This event is FREE and open to the public.

Stay tuned to Blogging Black Miami for photos from the event.
