The African American tradition of Kwanzaa was created by Dr. Maulana Karenga. It was established as a means  to help African Americans reconnect with their African  cultural and historical heritage by uniting in meditation and study of African traditions and Nguzo Saba, the “seven principles of African Heritage.” Kwanzaa is observed from December 26 - January 1.



Thursday, December 31 at 4 PM


The Sixth Principle of Kwanzaa

To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

From Booker T. Washington to Jean-Michel Basquiat to RUN DMC, our creativity has distinguished and provided a platform for African American expression for centuries. On this sixth day of Kwanzaa, we celebrate the principle of Kuumba, Creativity, with a series of concert style performances. Acts include: hip-hop group The Zoo, spoken word artists PEACE & Kevlar, and songstress Alex Way. This program is family friendly and appropriate for guests of all ages.


Join The Wright Museum and our partner Taqee & Khary WAE for this FREE Kuumba celebration.

These family-friendly events are FREE and open to the public. For more information please call (313) 494-5800.
