CHICO, Calif. - There is a chance this weekend to celebrate Kwanzaa and the increasingly diverse community in Chico, with food, fellowship, music and dance performances.

The Amma-Culture organization is hosting 'Chico Honors Africa - A Taste of Kwanzaa' Sunday, Dec. 30, 2018, at the Chico Women's Club, from 2 -5 p.m.

A selection of Afro-Caribbean dances will be part of the celebration, including a Brazilian Samba and many other regional dance styles.

The event, say organizers, is to honor family, tradition, culture and observe the seven principals of Kwanzaa.

Given the Camp Fire and the recent stresses within the community, organizers say the principle of unity is especially important.

Amma-Culture founder, Anecia Johnson says the event is a good opportunity for people to come together in order to connect in a positive environment to support one another.

In addition to dance and music, there will also be a presentation by a local author and discussions of how various cultural groups can work together.

For more information, call (530) 354-7018.
