Web Sites Inform, Celebrate Kwanzaa

Awareness of the African-American family unity festival of Kwanzaa is on the rise. A number of online resources inform the uninitiated and assist Kwanzaa celebrants.

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.

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.

Kwanzaa cards and decorations are available from African products supplier Nu Nubian, and you can buy a Kwanzaa cookbook online for $17.95 at Shops.Net.

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.
