Seven Spools of Thread: A Kwanzaa Story The origin of the African American celebration of Kwanzaa is explained in a foreword to this picture book and the principles honoured in the seven days of Kwanzaa are embodied in the fable that follows. Set in an African village, the story describes how seven brothers struggle to fulfil their late father's challenge that they turn seven spools of thread into gold. Putting aside their quarrelsome ways, they learn to co-operate and to work for the good of the whole community -with miraculous results.
