Missouri City Branch Library will celebrate family, community and culture in a special holiday program, “A Celebration of Kwanzaa,” on Saturday, December 28, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 1530 Texas Parkway.
The celebration will begin with a performance by the KoumanKe’le’ African Dance and Drum Ensemble. Comprised of continental Africans and African Americans, the troupe performs traditional and contemporary dances of Guinea, Ghana, South Africa, Senegal, and the Congo.
Following the performance, professional storyteller Kathy Culmer will entertain and educate the audience with stories centered on one of the seven principles of Kwanzaa – unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith.
The program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served, and guests are invited to wear “African attire.” For more information, call the branch library at 281-238-2100.
