Kwanzaa

Kwanzaa is a celebration held in the United States and in other nations of the African diaspora in the Americas. The celebration, created in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga, honors pan-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 (Nguzo saba) of Kwanzaa are: Umoja (unity), Kujichagulia (self-determination), Ujima (collective work and responsibility), Ujamaa (cooperative economics), Nia (purpose), Kuumba (creativity) and Imani (faith).
