Today marks the start of Kwanzaa. This holiday was created in 1966-1967 by Maulana Karenga. This holiday was created to celebrate African heritage in African-American culture and is observed from December 26 to January 1, culminating in a feast and gift-giving.
The seven principles or Nguzo Saba which are the seven principles of African Heritage celebrated each day. They are as follows:
Kujichagulia: Self Determination
Umija: Collective Work and Responsiblity
Ujamaa: Cooperative Economics
These seven principles are very important in building the Black Culture and Maintaining Our Strength. Think and ponder on these principles during the next 7 days.
