Kwanzaa is an African-American cultural holiday conceived and developed by Dr. Maulana Ron Karenga, first celebrate in 1966.  Kwanzaa is celebrated from December 26th through January 1 st, with each day focused on seven principles.   Kwanzaa seeks to enforce a connection  to African cultural identity, provide a focal point for the gathering of Africans and African-American peoples, and to reflect upon the seven principles (Nguzo Saba), that have sustained Africans

UMOJA: The first principle of Kwaznaa, which means UNITY, To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race.

KUJICHAGULIA : The second principle of Kwanaa, meaning Self determination, To define ourseleves, name ourseleves, create for ourseleves, and speak for ourseleves.
