Anacostia Community Museum's Education Department hosted Kwanzaa events, including Kwanzaa workshops and school events as well as Kwanzaa-related films, plays, and storytelling.
The seven principles of Kwanzaa celebrated through storytelling, singing, playing of musical instruments, and art activities, which included stenciling/printmaking and tie dying t-shirts. Julie Dickerson-Thompson also explained the ways in which her family celebrated Kwanzaa. The day ended with a candlelighting ceremony led by Zora Martin-Felton. After the recording of the activities of the workshop day, Robert Hall, an educational specialist at the Anacostia Museum, talked about the origin of Kwanzaa; the specific ways people have celebrated the seven principles of Kwanzaa; and the workshop leaders who led the activities throughout the day.
