Heri za Kwanzaa activitiesNov. 23, 2021 - Please join The Bedford & Dr. Irene Pinkard Living-Learning Community for our third annual Kwanzaa event on Thursday, Dec. 2 at noon at the South Quad.

Come enjoy a Karamu (feast) meal provided by the local Black-Owned restaurant, Caribbean Haven. Learn about the history and traditions of Kwanzaa at our Nguzo Saba (seven principles) candle-lighting ceremony and make homemade beeswax candles and paper beads with The Human Nature Center of Ventura in the spirit of Kuumba (creativity, Kwanzaa principle #6)!

Seven students who volunteer to be candle-lighters during our Nguzo Saba candle-lighting ceremony will receive their very own handmade Kinara (candle holder) and Kwanzaa seven principles t-shirt! Candle-lighters will be filmed so that the ceremony can be accessible to the campus community via social media on the actual days of Kwanzaa (December 26 - January 1).

Folks interested in attending should RSVP online. Food and craft supplies will be available on a first come, first served basis. This event is sponsored by Instructionally Related Activities funding.
