Happy, Happy Kwanza Song – Grades 4 – 12
Kwanza was started in 1966 when African Americans wished to get in touch with their heritage and native traditions. Matunda Ya Kwanza – First Fruit of the Harvest has evolved into a time to reflect on being the best person you can be, supporting each other and defining ourselves by the good deeds we do to build a better world.
This celebratory song will inspire your students, not only on a historical level, but to examine the powerful strength and determination of a group of people to live with dignity and integrity.
Song style is a rousing Gospel choir type song with a dance break. Lyric sheet is included along with the 7 principals of Kwanza. Enjoy!!
