Kwanzaa is an African American and pan-African seven-day cultural festival that is celebrated every December 26 to January 1. Like most festivals, Kwanzaa incorporates music as an essential element of its celebration. The purpose of Kwanzaa is to celebrate African American heritage, family and community.

Each of the seven 2½ min segments of The Seven Principles of Kwanzaa (click title to learn more and hear each segment) focuses on the specific principle of that day/date, and sheds a bit of light on either the principle itself, or some element of the celebration.

Support for The Seven Principles of Kwanzaa is provided in part by Rochester Area Community Foundation.
