Slideshow: UW Green Bay joins in Kwanzaa celebration

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, in cooperation with St. Norbert College and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, joined with the community to celebrate Kwanzaa, a unique African-American celebration, earlier this month. The event at the KI Convention Center on Saturday featured music, food and cultural education. Chancellor Tom Harden was among the local leaders who attended and spoke at the event. Kwanzaa focuses on the traditional African values of family, community, responsibility, commerce and self-improvement. This year’s theme was “Women in Leadership.”
