Kwanzaa

December 26, 2021 - January 1, 2022


“What is the news?”
That’s the greeting — “Habari gani” in Swahili — used during Kwanzaa in December.
The greeting meant to be answered by one of Kwanzaa’s seven principles, such as unity and faith. The week-long holiday celebrates African American heritage and culture.

Each day of the festival is celebrated with one of the seven Kwanzaa principles in mind:

Unity (umoja)
Self-determination (kujichagulia)
Collective responsibility (ujima)
Cooperative economics (ujamaa)
Purpose (nia)
Creativity (kuumba)
Faith (imani)
