Let’s have a fruitful Kwanzaa!

Join the Village Project for Kwanzaa 2015

San Francisco will come alive with 15 Kwanzaa celebrations in seven days Dec. 26 through Jan. 1, presented by the Village Project and many community partners. Striving to unite and strengthen our family, community and nation, each of the seven principles – the Nguzo Saba – will be highlighted with the lighting of a candle, followed by a feast and a myriad of artistic performances. On New Year's Day, the final day of Kwanzaa, join the celebration at 6 p.m. at St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Church, 2097 Turk St., with Bernard Anderson and The Smooth Blues Band. The last candle of the kinara will be lit, and Dr. Dorothy Tsuruta, chair of the Department of Africana Studies, SF State University, will MC.

Holiday events and gifts to uplift

Traditionally, the holiday season is a time of good will, great food, community, family and gift exchanges. But for some, the holidays are just another reminder of the people who are missing from our communities, our loved ones who are in jails and prisons.
