Between Christmas and New Year's Day, many people throughout the United States celebrate another holiday, Kwanzaa. A joyous celebration of African American culture, Kwanzaa was created as a way for African American families to come together to remember and rejoice in their rich heritage. Author A. P. Porter describes how the holiday got its start and how it is celebrated, and also gives an explanation of each of Kwanzaa's seven principles. Porter also provides a practical list of the items needed for readers to make their own Kwanzaa celebration.
