Annual Kwanzaa Celebration


Habari Gani is a Swahili term that means, "What's the news" or "What's the Word?". During the 7 days of Kwanzaa celebrations (December 26th-January 1st), Habari Gani is a question posed every day in a call and response. The answer for each day is one of the Nguzo Saba, the 7 principles of Kwanzaa. At Marcus Garvey Academy, we infuse the 7 Principles of Kwanzaa in daily instruction. We also have an annual Kwanzaa Celebration where the students display one of the Nguzo Saba Principles through song, dance, or speech.
