Kwanzaa is derived from the phrase "mutanda ya kwanza" which means "first fruit" in kiSwahili. It is a non-religious African American holiday that celebrates family, community, and culture. It is observed for 7 days: Dec 26- Jan 1. Luther College observes Kwanzaa on the Saturday before finals week with a traditional feast with music, poetry, dancing and speech focused on its principles and contemporary relevance. A chapel service is held a day before the festival. For more information click here.
