Celebrating collective work and responsibility on the third day of Kwanzaa
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Thursday was the third day of Kwanzaa, and in Rochester there was an event at the Memorial Art Gallery.
Kwanzaa brings African-American and Pan-African culture and traditions together. The Rochester Kwanzaa Coalition is hosting celebrations this week under the theme Harambee, which means “Let’s pull together.”
Thursday’s event focused on the principle of collective work and responsibility. The celebration included arts and crafts, music, a dance workshop and a tour of the black artists in the museum’s collection.
