Virtual Harambee 2021!
Although we cannot safely gather together for our cherished Harambee event, we can still come together as a community!
The annual Harambee event has been a means of providing community, fellowship, and a celebration of cultures. We will all miss the opportunity to be in the presence of friends and family, break bread and dance together. BUT! This does not mean we are unable to come together as a community and enjoy a virtual Harambee together!
We invite you to participate in our virtual Harambee by either by trying one of the delicious recipes listed and sharing a photo of your meal, or submitting your own recipe and photo.
If your recipe is a family secret, that's ok - still feel free to share a picture without the recipe.
Email your pictures or recipes to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add them here!
Let us know what's in your photo and note if your recipe is vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc.
In keeping with the 2021 Black History Month theme of "The Black Family," we are providing links to learn more about Kwanzaa - a celebration of history, values, family, community and culture. The holiday is centered around seven community-focused values, with a strong emphasis on gatherings and shared meals.
