Cultural Expressions: Kwanzaa Special Screening Event

Fri, 12/16/2022 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Join us for a special screening of this new WXXI production that explores the seven principles of Kwanzaa.

Honoring the heritage, unity, culture, and rich contributions of African Americans, Kwanzaa is more than just a celebration; it’s a way of life. Cultural Expressions: Kwanzaa explores the seven principles that are the foundation of Kwanzaa by sharing seven real-life stories of impact. These stories reveal how each principle plays a role in the Black community, illustrated through cultural elements of dance, storytelling, music, and spoken word.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion, moderated by WXXI's Mona Isler. Panelists include: Dolores Jackson-Radney & Terry Chaka of the Rochester Kwanzaa Coalition, and Teej Jenkins, Producer/Director of the film.
