Hannibal Free Public Library

HANNIBAL, Mo. — Hannibal Free Public Library will offer a Kwanzaa puppet show at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 28. Presented by Marsha Mayfield’s We Stand United Puppetry Group, this special holiday show features puppeteers from Hannibal ages 9-12 and a teenage stage crew. 

Kwanzaa, an annual celebration of African-American culture, is observed annually and celebrated from Dec. 26-Jan. 1.  Based on harvest festival traditions from west and southeast Asia, Kwanzaa ends with a communal feast called Karamu. The puppet show will tell the story of Kwanzaa.  After the puppet show, the audience will be invited to sample “A Taste Of Kwanzaa” through traditional soul foods observed with the Kwanzaa celebration. 

We Stand United Puppetry Group began its cultural puppetry education program in 2019.  They strive to entertain and educate audiences. Sponsors for the group are Missouri Tourism and the Hannibal Juneteenth Coalition.
