Roberson Museum sets up Kwanzaa display through holiday

Posted: Updated:

BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- Tuesday night was the first night of Kwanzaa, a time African Americans across the country celebrate family, community, and culture.

Those celebrating will light a Kinara, which has seven candles, each representing a moral or principle.

Throughout the seven day holiday, a Kwanzaa display will be set up at the Roberson Museum and Science Center.

"The international forest here at Roberson is one way to experience all these different cultures, and I think its important that we continue to recognize the people and the culture that made this community what it is," said Roberson Museum Executive Director Michael Grasso.

The museum is located on Front Street in Binghamton.
