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, 31st December we light the third red candle and discuss the principle of KUUMBA representing CREATIVITY, which teaches us to use our creativity to maintain our community and leave it more beneficial than when we inherited it.
