National Hispanic Heritage Month is the period from September 15 to October 15 in the United States, when people recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate the group's heritage and culture. Queen Ann Nzinga Center hosts a celebration of Hispanic heritage that includes a free community fair featuring food, music, dance and interactive games.

Kwanzaa celebrates the seven principles of African heritage: unity, self determination, collective work and responsibility, co-operative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith.  It is celebrated from December 26th to January 1st.

Women's History Celebration

Woman's History Celebration Concert

March is Women's History Month and the Queen Ann Nzinga Center hosts several events throughout the month. Exceptional women from the community are honored at an annual luncheon - a celebration concert follows later in the month.

Music from the African Diaspora

The Diaspora concert entertains, educates and builds awareness through multiculturalism and music.  The music is rooted in African influences and represents the musical styles of Africa, Brazil, Afro Latin and West Indies.  The audience will enjoy a rich blend of traditional and contemporary Gospel, R&B, Nostalgia, Pop, and Funk music performing songs with positive messages.
