About Kwanzaa
Kwanzaa is a time for families and communities to come together to remember the past and to celebrate African American culture. During this week long holiday, we learn about the Seven Principles of Kwanzaa, or Nguzo Saba, that help us to continue building and maintaining unified and empowered communities.

This program is brought to you by the National Museum of African American History and Culture's Early Childhood Education Initiative (ECEI). ECEI supports the understanding and development of each child’s healthy racial identity, their joy in human diversity and inclusion, their sense of justice, and their capacity to act for their own and others’ fair treatment.
