Observance for Unity, Creativity, Faith and Gift Giving

by African Americans and the African Diaspora

The seven candles represent the following:

Umoja – Unity

Kujichagulia – Self Determination

Ujima – Collective Work and Responsibility

Ujamaa – Cooperative Economics

Nia – Purpose

Kuumba – Creativity

Imani – Faith

May these attributes of the Kwanzaa celebration promote greater understanding and common ground for peace among all peoples.
