Alanna Grace-Marie Schwartz presents her Kwanzaa Art Show.

She said: “Kwanzaa is for everyone, so sharing this information with the public is my way of providing education of culture and love to our society. I am presenting my digital art series about the African celebration of life, Kwanzaa. I was inspired to create this series by HFC sociology professor Dr. Kalvin DaRonne Harvell, the BMQFG faculty advisor. He is the one who has been teaching me about African traditions, thus bringing me closer to my roots and familiarizing me with my culture. I created this art to showcase my artistic expression and interpretations and also to educate the public about each day of Kwanzaa and its significance.
