The African American Heritage Parade and Festival objectives are to showcase the richness of the African American community on Long Island, educate our youth and allow them to experience African American pride by embracing its legacy. Our Seven Grand Marshalls will be introducing the Seven Principals of Kwanzaa with the purpose of contributing in building and reinforcing family, community and culture among African American people as well as Africans throughout the world African community. These values are called the Nguzo Saba which in Swahili means the Seven Principles. Developed by Dr. Karenga, the Nguzo Saba stands at the heart of the origin and meaning of Kwanzaa, for it is these values which are not only the building blocks for community but also serve to reinforce and enhance them.
