Kwanzaa, December 26 – January 1 every year, is an African-American holiday tradition that celebrates seven principles from our communal African heritage.

The tradition was founded by activist Ron Karenga in 1966. Today, most families observe Kwanzaa in addition to Christmas.

The Seven Principles

  1. Unity
  2. Self-Determination
  3. Collective Work and Responsibility
  4. Cooperative Economics
  5. Purpose
  6. Creativity
  7. Faith
