Discover The Kwanzaa Experience

The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/ Douglas County (CAC) in partnership with Douglas County Connection celebrates the holiday and its seven universal principles of Kwanzaa. This Sunday, December 18th from 2 pm- 4 pm at the Cultural Arts Center.  For over 30 years Douglas County Connection, a Satellite of the Cultural Arts Council, has celebrated Kwanzaa in the community.  This well-attended event has attracted citizens and youth from around the Douglasville/Douglas County area. This event is free & open to the public.

The week-long celebration of Kwanzaa takes place from December 26 through January 1. Kwanzaa is the Swahili word for “first fruits of the harvest”. Each of the 7 days is tied to a specific principle of the holiday; unity, self-determination, collective responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith.  Come learn about the Kwanzaa Experience with the CAC and the DC Connection.

The Douglas County Connection was founded by Helen Catron in 1990. For over 30 years, the DC Connection has established, supported, and sponsored community events. These events enrich the cultural experience in the arts, particularly as it relates to African American culture and history.
