A Kwanzaa celebration will be put on Thursday by The African American Council of Elders of Wichita/Sedgwick County and the Wichita Branch NAACP Presents. The 10th annual event, titled Talk with the Elders, will be from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Madison Avenue Clubhouse, 1005 N. Madison Ave.

Kwanzaa is a week-long celebration that runs Thursday through Jan. 1 and honors African heritage in African-American culture.

Those who attend Thursday’s event are invited to join in creating a “Kuumba” salad by bringing their favorite salad ingredients and dressing. Event organizers will provide the greens. The first 50 children who arrive will receive a copy of the book “Together for Kwanzaa” by Juwanda Ford. Five families also will receive a CD called “Kwanzaa What it is and How to Celebrate it.” Attendees can visit one-on-one or in small groups with the Council of Elders.

Admission is free. For more information, contact Kenya Cox at 316-516-0485.
