                                                              Venue will host the third day of Kwanzaa, observing the principle Ujima, which

                                                              means collective work and responsibility. To build and maintain our community

                                                              together and make our community's problems our problems and solve them



The doors will open to the public at 4:00 pm and the performances will begin at 5:00 pm at C3 at the Venue. AADE seeks to preserve and promote the finest traditions of African and African American dance and music to the broad community. We will have a Children’s village with a drumming class and the first one hundred children will receive a “Davis goodie” bag filled with educational materials, toys, and coupons from local businesses. The day is filled with dancing, singing, poetry, a vendor market, and more. In honor of Baba Chuck Davis donated canned foods and toiletry items will be given to a local non-profit.
