MINDS ABOUT PROGRESS TO HOST KWANZAA CELEBRATION SATURDAY IN WEBB CENTER

The Old Dominion University student organization Minds About Progress will host the 5th annual Kwanzaa celebration Saturday, Dec. 10, beginning at noon at Webb University Center on the campus. Admission is free and open to the public.

Professor Griff, the former minister of information for the hip-hop group Public Enemy, will be one of the workshop speakers. Ezibu Muntu, an ensemble from Richmond, will lead interactive drumming, dance and storytelling performances.

The program also includes poetry readings, a fashion show of African attire and a vendor bazaar. Workshop topics will range from holistic health to the impact of the media on the family.

Kwanzaa is an African-American celebration of family and culture held Dec. 26 through Jan. 1 each year that is based on "first fruits" holidays in Africa.
