Traditional West African drums, spirited dances, colorful candles and traditional clothes introduce young viewers to the African-American celebration of Kwanzaa. This program explores the seven principles of the Kwanzaa festival: Unity, Self-Determination, Collective Work, Cooperation, Purpose, Creativity and Faith in Self. An African folktale, Unanana and the Enormous One-Tusked Elephant, vividly illustrates the idea of conflict resolution within the community. Children learn to create their own necklaces from beads, buttons and pasta to share in the joy of this celebration. Part of the multivolume Holidays for Children DVD Series. 23 minutes. Closed-captioned.
