Since 1992 The McMillian Family has been celebrating Kwanzaa. We started celebrating informally with our own family. Later we branched out to a more structured celebration including extended family, friends and the community in the holiday. Each year is a little different but just as enriching. The 2001 Kwanzaa Celebration was he largest gathering. There were approximately 125-150 celebrants.

We hope this guide will assist you in getting started with your own Kwanzaa Celebration.
