Kwanzaa was founded more than half a century ago, aimed at connecting those in the African diaspora to their heritage.

A seven-night harvest celebration, Kwanzaa centers around themes of community and culture. Kibibi Ajanku, founder of Baltimore’s Sankofa Dance Theater, tells us how she came to celebrate Kwanzaa and the holiday’s significance.
