Kwanzaa at the South Dallas Cultural Center celebrates KUUMBA

Dallas South News Wire (Office of Cultural Affairs)

Every year Dallas African American organizations and institutions across the metroplex celebrate Kwanzaa as a united body. We kick-off the Kwanzaa Community Celebration with a parade that showcases the seven principles of Kwanzaa. Organizations that present or support African centered activities all come together to let the community know we’re here as resources for their families.

Besides participating in the parade, the South Dallas Cultural Center’s specific contribution is an evening of family fun and edutainment to celebrate the Nguzo Saba principle of Kuumba. Kuumba is the practice of creativity within the African community, creativity in its artistic definition but also creativity in its intellectual definition. The resident companies of the Center present our patrons with a demonstration of how creativity manifests throughout the year at the South Dallas Cultural Center. In these very challenging economic times, we challenge everyone to use their creativity to make the community a better place for our children, elders and others less fortunate than ourselves. Kuumba, creativity appropriately prepares us to end the year on a high note so that Imani, faith can begin the next one with a creative spirit.

Kwanzaa Parade: Sunday, December 26 at 3 pm. The parade starts at Glendale Park in Oak Cliff and culminates at A. Maceo Smith High School. Free.   Kwanzaa At The Center: Friday, December 31 at 7 pm. Free.
