Before Kwanzaa "officially" started, there were celebrations at both Laney College and UC Berkeley.

Keeping a long-standing tradition alive, Wo'se Church kicked off the first night of Kwanzaa in East Oakland.

The second night of Kwanzaa saw two events in downtown Oakland; a Kwanzaa dinner hosted by a Bay Area artists collective, and a presentation by spoken word artist Ise Lyfe.

On the fifth night of Kwanzaa, the East Bay Church of Religious Science hosted Nia Later that same evening, the Pan-African Peoples Organization hosted Nia also.

In addition to programs across the Bay Area in Sunnyvale and East Palo Alto, the Village Project hosted its seventh annual series of Kwanzaa programs.
