Umoja Karamu celebrates family members’ commitment to one another and it is a way for African American families to celebrate common history, ethnic experiences and cultural heritage. It is a very vibrant celebration of giving thanks while honoring the roots and history of the African American family, and it is growing in popularity across the nation.
