First candles of Kwanzaa lit

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Kwanzaa begins Thursday, the day after Christmas and lasts through the first of the year.

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.
