Hempstead celebrates Kwanzaa

People gathered at Kennedy Park in Hempstead to celebrate Kwanzaa on Wednesday, Dec. 27, 2017. The weeklong secular holiday honors African-American culture and runs through Jan. 1. The Rev. Kirk Lyons of Vanderveer Park United Methodist Church described Kwanzaa as an "anti-holiday" holiday centered on investing in people instead of purchasing gifts. (Credit: Howard Schnapp)
