The seven day celebration was conceived in 1966 by Maulana Karenga, professor of African Studies and activist of the African-American rights movement in the United States.

The name Kwanzaa derives from the Swahili expression "matunda ya kwanza", which means "first fruit of the harvest".

During the festival, families organize various activities around seven principles ("Nguzo Saba"): Unity, Self-determination, Collective Work and Responsibility, Cooperative Economics, Purpose, Creativity and Faith. The main symbol of the festival are seven coloured candles representing the seven principles; they are lit one at a time for each of the seven nights of the week.

The historical re-enactment–which this year reaches its 244th edition–takes place at the Old South Meeting House, the site where the settlers gathered in 1773. Here you can witness the reconstruction of the debate on tea taxes imposed by England. You can also follow the procession through the historic streets of Boston until the port where the tea destruction ceremony is held.

A group of artists, including Claude Monet and Camille Pisarro, left the French capital to move to London. The 'EY Exhibition: Impressionists in London' opened to the public on the 2nd of November, telling of the relationship between French artists and the UK capital. Six canvases of Monet's Houses of Parliaments series are exhibited. All the paintings in the series have the Palace of Westminster–the seat of the British Parliament–as subject matter, painted in different weather conditions and at different times during the day.

Entitled King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, the film is inspired by "Le Morte d'Arthur", a work written by Sir Thomas Malory from several French and English novels and published in 1485. The young Arthur (played by British actor Charlie Hunnam) lives in the alleyways of Londonium with his gang. His uncle Vortigern has murdered his parents and seized the crown, although Arthur is unaware of his lineage. When the young man manages to extract the legendary Excalibur sword from the stone, he is forced to accept his legacy and to lead the people against the tyrant Vortigern. In addition to Hunnam, the cast also includes Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey in the shoes of Guinevere and Jude Law as his enemy.

In the aftermath of the collapse of Wall Street, artists tried to capture the changes that the country was going through, from the perspective of urbanization, industrialization and immigration. The goal was to answer the question: what does it mean to be American? American Scene painters, Social Realists, and Regionalists portrayed typically American landscapes and images. Other artists instead attempted to merge aspects of the European trends of Cubism and Surrealism with American subjects. Jackson Pollock’s Untitled is a good example of this artistic fusion.

The seven day celebration was conceived in 1966 by Maulana Karenga, professor of African Studies and activist of the African-American rights movement in the United States. The name Kwanzaa derives from the Swahili expression "matunda ya kwanza", which means "first fruit of the harvest". During the festival, families organize various activities around seven principles ("Nguzo Saba"): Unity, Self-determination, Collective Work and Responsibility, Cooperative Economics, Purpose, Creativity and Faith. The main symbol of the festival are seven coloured candles representing the seven principles; they are lit one at a time for each of the seven nights of the week.
