What is Kwanzaa?

This week-long celebration was created by cultural activist Maulana Karenga and others during the 1960s.  It is an African American holiday that takes place the seven days after Christmas.  It “serves as an affirmation of positive ethnic values and identity during a traditionally European, gift-oriented holiday season.”

National Hispanic Heritage Month

In 1968, President Lyndon Johnson created National Hispanic Heritage Month, a time dedicated to recognizing the contributions of Hispanic Americans to the United States and celebrating Hispanic heritage and culture. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan revised the celebration to cover a 30-day period from September 15 to October 15.
