Celebrate the 19th Annual California State Capitol Kwanzaa Celebration! California political leaders are poised to embrace Kwanzaa, a “California Grown” internationally celebrated holiday, as part of a new paradigm working toward quantifying and qualifying racial equity and equal opportunity throughout the California Food and Agriculture industries.
Join them in the John Burton Hearing Room 4203 for a unique Kwanzaa celebration showcasing the past, present and future of California Pan African Heritage, grounded in a unique “California Grown” experience. Three artistic panels that comprise the murals “Origin and Development of the Name of the State of California” by Lucile Lloyd, portray our California History through our Spanish, Mexican and ongoing journey since California Statehood in 1850.
Today, Black Agriculture production is less than 1% of California Food and Agriculture production.
