To support “Black Arts, Black Power, and the Birth of Kwanzaa,” a free panel conversation exploring the ways in which artists shaped the tradition of Kwanzaa celebrated across the United States. The program, which takes place as part of a Greater Chatham Initiative’s larger Kwanzaa community celebration, features artists and scholars in discussion about the relationship between Kwanzaa and Chicago’s Black Arts Movement of the 1960s and ‘70s.
