Decmeber 26, 2018 – “Today marks the beginning of a week-long celebration of African-American culture and heritage by families and communities around our nation and County. Grounded in the seven guiding principles, or Nguzo Saba, unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith, Kwanzaa is a time to reflect and recommit to these important guiding values. I wish all Westchester residents who celebrate a joyous Kwanzaa.”
