THOUSAND OAKS, CA - California Lutheran University’s annual Kwanzaa celebration will feature food, performances and a ceremony from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 13, in Gilbert Arena.

Cal Lutheran students will perform a Kwanzaa ceremony and NAACP Saturday School students will make presentations. The celebration will include authentic African and African-American food, gospel music, dance and vendors selling arts and crafts.
Millions of African Americans observe Kwanzaa from Dec. 26 to Jan. 1 each year. It is a special time when families and friends unite to strengthen and encourage one another.

Gilbert Arena is located in the Gilbert Sports and Fitness Center at 130 Overton Court on the Thousand Oaks campus.

The NAACP Saturday School, the Afro-Centric Committee of Ventura County, and Cal Lutheran’s Office of Multicultural Programs and International Student Services and Black Student Union are sponsoring the free event. For more information, contact Daniel Lawrence at
