DETROIT (WXYZ) — The world’s largest kinara is set to be unveiled during the Motor City Kwanzaa Celebration in Downtown Detroit later this month.

According to a press release from the Downtown Detroit Partnership, the 30-foot tall Kwanzaa kinara will be on display to honor the seven-day celebration of African American culture and heritage.

The kinara will be located at Campus Martius Park and revealed after the celebration on December 26 at Beacon Park. It will be on display through January 1.

The monument is thanks to a collaboration with the DDP, Alkebu-Ian Village, Councilman Scott Benson, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and the City of Detroit.
