SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A Kwanzaa celebration Wednesday night kicked off with a little music.
At Elegant Affairs in Springfield “Digital Boombox Radio” launched their new station in honor of Kwanzaa. They provided some music and gave local residents a chance to come together and celebrate the tradition.
Chico Dusty of Springfield told 22News it’s a great way to share the true meaning of Kwanzaa. He said, “People take it and they think it’s just about one type of person or one type of people, one group of people, but it’s not. It’s about family and our community coming together as one.”
Dusty said Wednesday night also served as a networking event for local residents and leaders to discuss ways they can improve the community.
