Do You the Seven Principles of Kwanzaa?

We’re sure you know many Christmas traditions…decorating Christmas trees, leaving out milk and cookies, and listening to “All I Want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey. However, there are other holiday celebrations that happen around this time of year as well. One of those is Kwanzaa. Despite Kwanzaa being established since 1966 many people do not know much about this wonderful celebration. So, below we present to you 7 Principles of Kwanzaa.

7 Principles of Kwanzaa

To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.

This refers to defining, naming, creating, and speaking for oneself.

To build and maintain our community together and make our brother’s and sister’s problems our problems and to solve them together.

To build and maintain our own stores, shops and other businesses and to profit from them together.

To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.

To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

To believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.
