December 26 to January 1 will never be the same for seven year-old Kia and her family. The Edwards are celebrating Kwanzaa, the only indigenous, non-heroic African American holiday in the US. "Habari Gani" replaces "Hi." As each day unfolds Kia experiences the seven principles of Kwanzaa woven into her family and community life and learns that Kwanzaa is a cultural and political celebration of the African American experience.
