The Kwanza Crawl Comes to Brooklyn

The Kwanza Crawl Comes to Brooklyn

Cocktail culture has grown steady in NYC, so much so that the bars and lounges have converted and adapted to the times.  One demographic in which the culture of cocktails has seen growth is in predominantly historical communities of color. So what happens when you combine the celebration of Kwanzaa with a thriving cocktail culture? Naturally, you get the Kwanzaa Crawl in Brooklyn NY.

The crawl is 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, 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.
