On Saturday, December 12, Seward Co-op’s Friendship Store in Minneapolis hosted a community Kwanzaa Celebration with African drumming and dancing, stories and food, including a cultural stew called Pamoja Tutashinda (“Together We Shall Win” in Kiswahili). The event was organized and led by WE WIN Institute, Inc.
Kwanzaa is a week-long African American and Pan African celebration of family, community and culture. The holiday is observed from December 26 to January 1. Visit www.officialkwanzaawebsite.org for more information.
