KWANZAA is a seven day cultural holiday honored in the African and African-American communities, in celebration of their culture, family, and history. It is observed in the US from 26th December – 1st January. The name Kwanzaa, or “matunda ya kwanza” in the Swahili language, translates to “first fruits” and it signifies the first fruits of the harvest.
Tonight, 29th December we light the second red candle and discuss the principle of UJAMAA representing COOPERATIVE ECONOMICS, which teaches us to build and maintain our own businesses and to profit from them together.
