About the Author and Activity Book
I am excited to announce the release of my groundbreaking digital resource that celebrates the rich traditions of Kwanzaa while fostering family bonding and youth development. It provides a platform for families to come together, provide mutual support, and explore cultural heritage.
You may know me as a blogger but I am also a long time educator (25+ years). My expertise is in Child and Adolescent Development. I focus on African American children and youth, and positive youth development. I have multiple publications on child and adolescent development, and have worked with and for out-of-school time programs for decades. Learn more at my LinkedIn profile.
Each family activity can be carried out in one day. Activities are rooted in one Kwanzaa symbol and principle, and enriched by the inclusion of other Adinkra symbols and Afrocentric principles. This ensures that activities can be enjoyed and completed by family members and youth all year!
The eBook includes a set of carefully curated activities tailored for children and youth aged 10 to 17. These activities extend beyond the Kwanzaa period and focus on character-building, promoting cultural and racial pride, and supporting the pursuit of black excellence. The online interactive portion of the workbook contains videos, links, popups, and more. A downloadable companion packet contains family and youth development activities.

Finally, bonus coloring pages that you can download are included. As coloring encourages mindfulness, relaxation and creativity, we thought this would be a great addition for adults and youth alike. Coloring pages accommodate a wide age range. There are pages for preschoolers, children, youth, and adults. Coloring pages feature Kwanzaa activities for younger children, and more advanced coloring pages feature Black children, youth, and adults.
