Kwanzaa Celebration at AMNH
Hanukkah and Christmas may be over, but the 2013 holiday season isn’t done yet: Thursday 26 through Wednesday 1 marks Kwanzaa, a week long commemoration of African-American heritage and culture. At this family-friendly fest you can catch dance, theater and a Supremes medley by the cast of Motown: The Musical (12:15pm); peruse arts, crafts and food vendors at an International Marketplace (noon–4pm); and learn about the 48-year-old holiday at a screening of Maya Angelou–narrated documentary The Black Candle: A Kwanzaa Celebration, introduced by director MK Asante (4pm).
