On Thursday (Dec. 26), Jamie Foxx posted a photo of himself in African clothing with the caption "Happy Kwanzaa!" Yesterday marked the first day of the celebration that lasts for seven — each day and corresponding candle represent a unique value of importance to African Americans.
While many celebrities have been using social media to wish their followers happy holidays and New Year, few have mentioned Kwanzaa. However, many are known to celebrate the cultural holiday, including Oprah, Maya Angelou, and Angelina Jolie.
Heri za Kwanzaa!
