December 26: Kwanzaa Celebration at the Bay Area Discovery Museum

It’s the day after Christmas, you think that it’s all over, but no—the kids are still out of school. Spending money’s out of the question, but you want to take them somewhere exciting so they’ll get out of your hair. Of course! In celebration of the first day of Kwanzaa, the Bay Area Discovery Museum offers free admission all day on the day after Christmas! All throughout the museum will be art projects inspired by Africa, as well as a traditional Kwanzaa altar in the main lobby. But most importantly, in two separate shows, drummer E. W. Wainwright will lead a jazz combo in the African Roots of Jazz, tracing the lineage of jazz, blues, spirituals and hip-hop with songs, theater, and audience participation. Feel the umoja on Sunday, Dec. 26, at the Bay Area Discovery Museum, Fort Baker, 557 McReynolds Road, Sausalito. Open 9am–4pm; performances at 11am and 1pm. Free. 415.339.3900.
