Kwanzaa is a unique holiday. It is a celebration of family, heritage, and community. It’s a tapestry of the past, present, and future that looks toward the next day while honoring the last day.
Dr. Maulana Karenga, a professor at California State University in Long Beach created the holiday. Kwanzaa is not one holiday, it is a seven-day celebration pulled together from traditions of many different African countries. The days or “Seven Principles” are Umoja (Unity), Kujichagulia (Self-Determination), Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility), Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics), Nia (Purpose), Kuumba (Creativity), and Imani (Faith).
