Joyful Kwanzaa!

Kwanzaa is derived from the Swahili phrase “matunda ya kwanzaa,” which means “first fruits of the harvest.”

It is a celebration of family, community and culture of those of African descent worldwide, celebrated from December 26 through January 1 of each year.

I wish everyone of African descent who celebrates the Kwanzaa holiday nothing but happiness, joy and inspiration on this special holiday.

Kwanzaa has seven core principles, or Nguzo Saba:
  • Umoja: Unity. To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.
  • Kujichagulia: Self-Determination: …
  • Ujima: Collective Work and Responsibility. …
  • Ujamaa: Cooperative Economics. …
  • Nia: Purpose. …
  • Kuumba: Creativity. …
  • Imani: Faith.
