Kwanzaa is an annual celebration of African-American culture held every holiday season from December 26 to January 1, culminating in gift-giving and a feast of faith called Karamu Ya Imani. Kwanzaa was created by Maulana Karenga and first celebrated in 1966. A Kwanzaa ceremony may include drumming and musical selections, libations, a reading of the African Pledge and the Principles of Blackness, reflection on the Pan-African colors, a discussion of the African principle of the day or a chapter in African history, a candle-lighting ritual, artistic performance, and, finally the feast. Which can easily be 100% cruelty-free.
Kwanzaa is the perfect opportunity to share a compassionate meal with friends and family, but also with other vegans looking for a cruelty-free celebration.
