Children's Kwanza Event

In collaboration with lala books, UMOJA is educating children about Kwanzaa values by cultivating a space where the foundations of expressive noise and curiosity are laid for a life of fruition. This FREE culturally competent event features child & adult author read-alouds, drumming, educational crafts, and the opportunity to participate in a public art installment. LALA BOOKS & UMOJA are creating safe space for children to confidently expand their curiosity and sureness while learning about Kwanzaa & its holistic principles from the diaspora.
