More and more people are celebrating the African-American family unity festival of Kwanzaa, which runs from December 26 through January 1. A number of online resources are available to inform the uninitiated and assist Kwanzaa celebrants.
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.
Finally, there's evidence that Kwanzaa, for years a little-known event outside of the African-American community, has really gone mainstream. The White House press secretary has published the text of President Clinton's Kwanzaa greeting on the Net.
