NABJ Special Reports: The Holidays and Traditions in the Black Community

Shiny golden christmas tree and stylish text of Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and New Year on brown background.

Happy Holidays!

For the holidays, the NABJ network of journalists celebrates with stories looking at the traditions in the Black community.

Our report takes a look at how the holidays are celebrated, looking at food and drink, mental health issues, grieving, and getting together with family for the first time in almost two years during the COVID pandemic, using credit cards, and Kwanzaa.

We hope you enjoy the stories and please share with your network of family and friends.

Happy Holidays! Peace and Blessings to you all!
