MISSION STATEMENT

Our purpose at the Kwanzaa Heritage Foundation is to develop and
maintain activities in the cultural epicenter and birthplace of Kwanzaa-
Los Angeles. The Kwanzaa Heritage Foundation was created in
February 2002 amidst an outcry from the community for a dignified
festival and parade to honor our ancestors, family, and community.

Our goal is to advance the image and understanding of Kwanzaa
through educational functions, parades, and festivals that will espose
our community talents through the visual and performing arts.

Kwanzaa is a unique African American cultural celebrations that is now
celebrated by millions around the world and was created here in Los
Angeles in 1966 by Dr.Karenga and the US organization. Therefore
we will promote Los Angeles as the premiere place to come and
celebrate this holiday.
