    TekAfrica Digital Media maintains the Kwanzaa: Everything You Always Wanted to Know But Didn't Know Where to Ask Web site that features sections on origins, principles, and symbols of the holiday and a list of Kwanzaa gifts, books, and tapes.

    A lot of good information about the holiday can be also be accessed at Melanet's Kwanzaa Information Center, which includes a nationwide events calendar.
