Bring the entire family and learn about each of Kwanzaa's seven principles (the Nguzo Saba) through traditional West African dance. In addition to these dance workshops, the Museum's Youth Ambassador Interns will also be leading art-making activities for families.

Once a month, El Museo del Barrio opens its doors to everyone interested in exploring the vibrancy and diversity of Latino culture through free concerts, exhibitions, gallery and walking tours, art-making workshops, and spoken word recitals. Super Sabado showcases traditions, cultural expressions, and the latest in Latino art. As many Latino communities and traditions are rooted in African cultural heritage and practices, the Museum for African Art is pleased to collaborate and contribute programs as part of El Museo del Barrio's Super Sabado program.
