      Se você acha que, in the USA, há apenas European descendants, você está wrong. There are many Mexican, Indian and African descentants too.

      Para honor the African culture, Maulana Karenga criou a new celebration: Kwanzaa. It means ‘first fruits’ in Swahili, an African language.

      At Kwanzaa, families vestem special clothes, acendem candles and eat fruit, vegetables and espigas de corn.Na última night there is a big dinner e as children recebem small presents.

      Kwanzaa se tornou popular e é celebrated até mesmo em other countries – like Canada and Jamaica.
