Kwanzaa celebration is Dec. 6 in De Pere
UW-Green Bay’s American Intercultural Center and Black Student Union are again assisting with plans for the Annual Community Kwanzaa Celebration, scheduled this year for 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 6. Co-hosted by St. Norbert College and NWTC, the event takes place on the SNC campus in De Pere at the Michels Commons Ballroom, 409 Third St. The free event will include music, food and cultural education. All are welcome to attend. This year’s theme, Kujichagulia, or self-determination, encourages participants to “define ourselves, name ourselves, create ourselves, and speak for ourselves.” Africana Studies Prof. Maulana Karenga created the seven-day celebration to embrace African heritage and a strong sense of cultural values.
