[gallery link="file" columns="2"] The Kuumba Artists Collective of South Florida brought joy, culture and a spirit of history to the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center during their annual art exhibit on Monday, Dec. 26th. The days celebration was dedicated to honoring the first principal of Kwanzaa - umoja - meaning unity. The cultural celebration of Kwanzaa was actually started in 1966 by a college professor and community activist in order to re-connect Americans of Black heritage with their African roots.
