Kwanzaa celebration held in Delray Beach as seven-day holiday begins

Tuesday marked the first day of Kwanzaa a seven-day celebration that pays tribute to African-American ancestral roots.

The Spady Cultural Heritage Museum in Delray Beach invited families to enjoy a celebration.

The event included live music, arts and crafts, storytelling and more.

It centered around the seven core principles.
