All about Kwanzaa is a story theatre presentation that invites the audience to not only view but experience how this African American cultural tradition is celebrated in more than 30 million homes around the world. The Doll E Daze presenters dressed in authentic African attire will transform the auditorium or classroom into the Karmau (feast night event). This non religious cultural event is celebrated Dec26 – January 1 .
It reaffirms one’s commitment to their family, community and culture. A “feel good” celebration it allows one to check in on the progress they have made based on the seven principles. Kwanzaa was established in 1966 by Dr Mulauna (Ron) Karenga during the height of the civil rights movement. Based on his observations he concluded that the African American community needed to celebrate and reaffirm their bond as a people and to establish a value system that strengthened their belief in their families, community and culture. Based on his research the Nguzo Saba (seven principles) were created. During the presentation every element of the tradition will be shared with the audience, the lighting of the Mishumaa Saba(candles), reflections of our first Kwanzaa(1968) , the libation, celebration, creation of the Tree of life and passing of the zawadi’s(gifts) .
In our story theatre presentation, audience participation is key and taught in a lively call and response pattern usually found in many African American genre of music. Students are taught new vocabulary words and symbolic elements are introduced Students will be given instruments to play, participate in dance routines, sing songs and assist with creating affirmations. The audience will discover why this rich tradition is celebrated around the world..
