Editor's Note: I have been working with the President of the Afro Culture Preservation Council to raise the small amount of funding needed to make the Kwanzaa Children's Festival truly festive and fun for all who attend.
- One aspect of the work of the Council is the year round teaching of several artistic disciplines. Specifically, I've been helping to build new stilts for the students of Stilt Walking.
Please see the GoFundMe link above and make a gift towards a fun filled Festival next December.
