Flint’s Citywide Kwanzaa, As an African American and Pan-African holiday celebrated by millions throughout the world African community, Kwanzaa brings a cultural message which speaks to the best of what it means to be African and human in the fullest sense. Given the profound significance Kwanzaa has for African Americans and indeed, the world African community, it is imperative that an authoritative source and site be made available to give an accurate and expansive account of its origins, concepts, values, symbols and practice.
The core message and expansive meaning of Kwanzaa is rooted in its role as a rightful and joyous celebration of family, community and culture. Indeed, it is a celebration of a people in the rich and complex course of their daily lives and in the midst of their awesome and transformative movement thru human history.

What we would like local grocers and farmers to provide for us the Fruits and Vegetables for our Harvest Table. Our plan this year is to allow participants to gather from the table at the end of each night thusly replenishing the "Harvest Table" each night. Anything that grow can be apart of the Harvest Table. So we are looking for Potatoes, asparagus, egg plant cabbage, corn, tomatoes, kiwi fruit, oranges you name it! Fresh is good but we will take what ever you have to offer.
