Lowcountry Kwanzaa Art Display on St. Helena Island

Lowcountry Kwanzaa Art Display on St. Helena Island

Annual celebrations like Kwanzaa are ways in which like-minded African Americans can come together to celebrate unity, creativity, faith and gift giving. With this annual observance being such a festive and supportive holiday for our community, it is ideal to see Kwanzaa tributes or community displays in a variety of African-American popular towns or cities and the county that has produced a wonderful Kwanzaa Community Celebration is Beaufort, SC.

Kwanzaa Community Display 

The beautiful art installation by Just Dorneisha and Hank Herring can now be seen in Memorial Park “The Green” located on St. Helena Island. The display itself was hand built to showcase the seven principles of Kwanzaa Umoja, Kujichaguila, Ujima, Ujamaa, NIa, Kuumba, and Imani. In the center of display the Kinara, which is the Candleholder, is placed with the Mishumaa Saba, known as the Seven Candles to bring the entire piece together. Many are able to take pictures with the display and capture the moment during the seven days of Kwanzaa. 

The Facebook group, the Kwanzaa Community Celebration, has created a space for the Kwanzaa holiday to be celebrated and embraced. The online community always posts Southern gems and ideal content that many who celebrate Kwanzaa would appreciate. The digital community helps one find out more about the events that he or she can partake in while in the Lowcountry during Kwanzaa. Not only is the group active during the end of the year celebration, they also support the African American history in Beaufort, SC.

African American History in Beaufort

Much of African American history lies and is rooted in the historic city of Beaufort, SC. From Gullah traditions to African American historical facts, Beaufort, SC holds so much information about the African American community. The Gullah history in the Lowcountry reflects on our ability to preserve Gullah West and Central African linguistic and cultural heritage while also gaining rituals of Gullah storytelling, cuisine, music, folk beliefs, crafts and farming. When Gullah traditions were brought into Beaufort, SC and other parts of the Lowcountry, like Charleston & Savannah, planting of rice also became a trade imported into the area. The coast of Beaufort, became known as the “Rice Coast” where many skilled and knowledgeable African Americans enhance the rice industry. With a background in rice-growing from Africa and the migration to the states, much skill and cultivation of personal growth was inherited in the Black community. These personal skills of adaptability and being capable of an array of entrepreneurship and trade qualities truly encouraged the way in which Black Owned Business are seen in Beaufort, SC.
