Kumbuka Celebration


8pm
KiMo Theater - 423 Central Ave NW - Albuquerque, NM

Kumbuka means "Remember" in Swahili, and remebering our ancestors is one of the main reasons that Carter G. Woodson started what we now call Black History Month. This celebration is a free family show and includes song, spoken word, dance tributes, and an interactive libation ceremony; all to remember famous faces we all know, our ancestors, and our family and friends whom we have loved and lost. We invite guests to bring a photo of a loved one to participate in the ceremony.
