Since 1993, Manga has educated the community about African cultures through dance and drumming, teaching people about the impact of dance as a hobby and as a path to fitness and lifetime experience. By holding the Black History Month program, Manga's goal is to contribute to the exposure of children and adults to exercise,  reading, and dance performance from Africa and the Diaspora, and showing the connection between African-American heritage and Africa.
