Kamala Harris Talks About Childhood Kwanzaa Celebrations That Probably Never Happened

James Anthony, The Post Millennial, December 26, 2020

California Senator Kamala Harris tweeted about her Kwanzaa celebrations being “one of her childhood memories,” but critics are posting evidence that those celebrations likely never happened.

“{snip} Every year, our family…  and our extended family, we would gather around across multiple generations. {snip}”

It’s worth noting that Kwanzaa was only established in 1966, two years after Harris was born in 1964 so it is unlikely that her family celebrated it “across multiple generations.”


{snip} Harris never publicly spoke about Kwanzaa before just now.


Harris is the daughter of a Jamaican father and an Indian mother who met in California, where she was born and raised. Neither of these cultures are known to embrace celebrations like Kwanzaa.
