Windows To A Multicultural World
Kwanzaa Storytelling Program
for the Wee Ones!
Our Kwanzaa Storytelling Program was held live on Zoom on December 19, 2021 for children in grades PreK- 3 and families. This friendly, fun and interactive one-hour program was designed to help families with young children learn about African-American traditions and the celebration of Kwanzaa in ways that EVERYONE can enjoy.
Glenn Herring, a storyteller and singer of the Clemmons Family Farm's Vermont African-American/African Diaspora Artists' Network, and storyteller Queen Nur and musical accompanist Dwight James of the National Association of Black Storytellers, team up to share delightful educational stories and nurture fun, kind, and caring dialogue among participants.
The Windows to A Multicultural World 2021 Kwanzaa Storytelling program was hosted by Clemmons Family Farm's K-12 Arts Learning Advisor Kia'Rae Hanron.
Free viewing of the program was available exclusively on this webpage during the week of Kwanzaa from December 26, 2021 to January 1, 2022. The recording includes a closed captioning option.
