What is Kwanzaa Crawl?


A holiday celebrating black community, family, and culture



The act of traveling by foot from one bar to another


Kwanzaa crawl is... 

A one day event where people of the African diaspora join together to support the black owned bars in their neighborhood.  Crawlers will be dressed in whatever makes them feel black and beautiful,  for a day of unity, fellowship, and fun!

Presented by Kerry Coddett's Operation Mobilize, Kwanzaa Crawl is a bar crawl that will take place on the first day of Kwanzaa, Monday, December 26, 2016 in Brooklyn, New York. It will support local, minority-owned businesses in the Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, Clinton Hill, Fort Greene and Park Slope neighborhoods. The crawl is focused on the social aspect of building community, and facilitates the creation of economic empowerment within our community.


Monday, Dec. 26
