A note on Dr. Maulana Karenga's Lecture

Unfortunately, Dr. Maulana Karenga, the creator of the pan-African cultural holiday Kwanzaa and the Nguzo Saba (The Seven Principles), is unable to attend RCC as originally scheduled, due to a family illness. We are currently working with Dr. Karenga to reschedule his lecture for Spring 2016. We will provide concrete information on his rescheduled lecture at a later date.
