Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

This holiday, created by the author and professor Maulana Karenga in 1966, celebrates African-American heritage. Kwanzaa is derived from the Swahili term for "first fruits of harvest," and is celebrated with feasts, sharing libations, and lighting candles in the kinara. The seven candles represent the principles of African heritage: Umoja (Unity), Kujichagulia (Self-Determination), Ujima (Collective Work), Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics), Nia (Purpose), Kuumba (Creativity), and Imani (Faith).
