LITTLE ROCKS ANNUAL COMMUNITY WIDE KWANZAA CELEBRATION

For over fifteen years, Pyramid Art, Books and Custom Framing has observed Kwanzaa, a seven-day holiday celebrating family, community and culture. This year, Pyramid, along with the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center and the Little Rock Centtral High School Historic Site, will host the daily one-hour ceremony engineered to educate, inspire and invigorate participants. Each day, between December 26th and January 1st, the ceremony will feature a speaker to reflect on one of seven principles like Unity, Self Determination, and Cooperative Economics. This year, each ceremony will also spotlight the talent and creativity of local artisans from an array of cultural sectors, including poetry, dance, and culinary arts. The holiday culminates on New Year’s Day with the last ceremony and a special, celebratory meal. Each host site will be accepting gently used and new books for the community’s annual donation to a Central Arkansas organization. Our House is this year’s recipient. Perennial mistress of ceremonies, Auna Hearne, will conduct the ceremony and Ojima Robinson will provide drumming for each venue. The event is free and open to the public.
