Kwanzaa is an African American celebration with focus on the values of family, community responsibility, commerce, and self-improvement. It is a time of reaffirming African American people, their ancestors and culture. Since its founding in 1966, Kwanzaa has come to be observed by more than 18 million people worldwide. It is typically celebrated Dec. 26 to Jan. 1.

This year’s celebration, with the theme “Identity, Resilience and Hope” will feature live entertainment, a soul food feast and a marketplace featuring select vendors.

The celebration is free for UD students with RSVP (registration is required).

Tickets are required and available at the UD box offices for faculty and staff ($15) and the general public ($20).

For more information or to register, visit www.udel.edu/CBC.

The event is sponsored by the Center for Black Culture with support from the Black Student Union, Cultural Programming Advisory Board, and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
