Join us continue the expansion of Kwanzaa in the Capitol of the 5th Largest Economy on Earth, our "California Grown" Holiday comes to First Baptist Church of Sacramento in a good way...
2019 Sacramento Kwanzaa, “First Fruits of the Harvest" will highlight the basic fundamentals of urban agriculture and exciting new opportunities embracing job, career and industrial agribusiness development.

Kwanzaa, is our “California Grown” holiday created by Dr. Maulana Karenga in December 1966 and is now celebrated throughout the world.

Several “Agriculture Harvest” celebrations were fused together to create an uniquely African American inspired holiday in the aftermath of the Watts Riots in Los Angeles, CA.

Kwanzaa utilizes the language of Kiswahili, a Pan African language, said to have originated during the trade of enslaved African's beginning in 1698 on the spice island of Zanzibar, Kiswahili blends many ancient languages and cultures from throughout Equatorial Africa.

Education, Business and Interfaith leaders from throughout the Sacramento region and beyond are encouraged to embrace “First Fruits of the Harvest in the Farm to Fork Capitol of America,” in a year round inclusive and systemic way.

From Mt. Shasta and Shastina to the Tehachapi Mountains, throughout the Greater California Central Valley, we are poised to expand a positive new way forward while honoring our Pre-Gold Rush California Pan African Heritage throughout our “greatest garden in the world.”

Together, we will design an educational festive celebration utilizing the principles and symbols of Kwanzaa in context of “First Fruits of the Harvest”

Help us build and sustain an interactive 2019 Sacramento Kwanzaa Season targeting youth, literacy and community outreach toward building a broader understanding and practice of our universal principles, year round.
