Kwanzaa

Kwanzaa is here again!

Just in case you are wondering what Kwanzaa is or where the name Kwanzaa came from, below is some information about Kwanzaa.

Kwanzaa came from the Swahili (Common East African Language) string of words matunda ya kwanza which means “first fruits”. Maulana Karenga (RonaldEverett), a professor or African studies in the 1960s created and publicized Kwanzaa in an effort to dedicate a period in which Black heritage would be celebrated. Kwanzaa according to Professor Karenga has seven core principles also known as Nguzo Saba. The principles are:

Self-Determination, Unity, Purpose, Creativity, Faith, Responsibility and Collective Work, and Cooperative Economics.

Kwanzaa is celebrated for a week long. It is celebrated from the 26th of December until the 1st of January. kwanzaa is widely celebrated in the United States, Canada and some West African countries.

Kwanzaa colors are Red, Black and Green.
