Pre-KWANZAA Celebration – November

 

Kwanzaa, an African American holiday based on the first fruit celebrations of Africa, was created by Dr. Maulana Karenga to introduce and reinforce seven basic values of African culture: Unity, Self-determination, Collective Work and Responsibility, Cooperative Economics, Purpose, Creativity, and Faith. The holiday is officially celebrated December 26 to January 1. Due to the OU calendar, it is celebrated early while students are still on campus. Kwanzaa is a collaborative cultural presentation of the Office of Multicultural Programs (MCP), the Multicultural Center (MCC) and the Black Student Cultural Programming Board (BSCPB).
