Happy Kwanzaa from Mary Neal

Happy Kwanzaa! 

  • Umoja (Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.
  • Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.
  • Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility): To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers' and sisters' problems our problems, and to solve them together.
  • Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.
  • Nia (Purpose): To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.
  • Kuumba (Creativity): 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.
  • Imani (Faith): To believe with all our hearts in God, our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.
What marvelous principles we celebrate as we embrace Kwanzaa. Let us apply the seven principles every day, especially the third one: Make our brothers' and sisters' problems our problems, and solve them together. Let us work together to end the death penalty, reduce mass incarceration, save the elderly and protect the children, and give Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill.
