Welcome! Children’s Kwanzaa Village is a place of community and learning for children and families of the African Diaspora.
It Takes A Village
Children’s Kwanzaa Village
We honor our Children, Elders, and Ancestors.
While the celebration of Kwanzaa happens once a year, we make sure we are practicing the principles of Kwanzaa- the Nguzo Saba– all year long. Our Kwanzaa Corner provides education and resources to adults and children to promote and encourage the practice of these principles every day.
We believe our children are independent thinkers and high performers in school, in the arts, and across our communities. We strive to ensure families’ needs are met, and continue to connect with organizations across the diaspora to close resource gaps.

We could not do this without your continued love, encouragement, and support.
Kwanzaa is an annual celebration of African-American culture which is held from December 26 to January 1, culminating in gift-giving and a feast of faith, called Karamu Ya Imani.
It was created by Maulana Karenga and first celebrated in 1966!
To uphold the mission of educating our children and celebrating our greatness, we deemed it necessary to bring this celebration of black history culture and tradition to the fore front where it belongs.
