Over the past five decades, Kwanzaa has become a popular observation throughout the U.S. and more recently Canada and South America. This annual, week-long celebration of African heritage and African-American culture runs from Dec. 26, 2012 to Jan. 1, 2013. The Afrikan Poetry Theater will hold a Kwanzaa celebration at the Springfield Gardens Educational Campus on Saturday, December 29, 2012. In addition to the traditional candle-lighting and distribution of Zawadi (gifts) to children, the event will include musical and dance performances as well as an African marketplace and food court.
