This year, we are excited to have Javonté Anyabwelé and his family join us. They embody the Principles of Kwanzaa and have garnered a social media following as the deliberate in supporting Black-owned businesses and teaching Black culture. We will also be treated to the talents of musician, dancer and artist, Prince Emmanuel Abiodun Aderele and the OsunDara Dance Theater, Grammy-nominated spoken word artist Rebecca “Butterfly” Vaughns and the award-winning Next Generation Dance Academy.

Nickelodeon HALO Awards winner, culture influencer, philanthropist, speaker and mogul-in-the-making, Zoe Terry returns with her Zoe’s Great Doll Give-Away. Zoe’s Dolls collects and distributes little brown dolls for little brown girls.

In addition to the Kwanzaa Celebration traditions of uplift and unity, there will be a special community prayer for healing in our prayer and for the victims of senseless gun violence that have taken so many lives.

Our unsung hero community salute goes to Valencia Gunder, James Mungin II BKA “Munch” and Konscious Kontractors for their incredible demonstration of the Principles of Kwanzaa in our community, especially during and after Hurricane Irma when many were without food and were faced with debris and damaged homes.

Hosted by the Miami-Dade Chapter of the FAMU National Alumni Association, the Dr. Arthur & Mary Woodard Foundation for Education and Culture and Osun's Village African Caribbean Arts Corridor.

The event is FREE but we do ask that you register at KwanzaaMiami28.eventbrite.com. Kwanzaa is a non-religious, non-political, family-friendly holiday. Enjoy the Soul Food Feast, music, dancing and celebrating with friends.
