Kwanzaa Day 7 Imani/Faith Living the Seven Principles with Angela Douglas

Kwanzaa Day 7 Imani/Faith To believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders and the righteousness and victory of our struggle. We have to close the vision deficit and forge an image of ourselves to which the future must conform. (Dr. Eddie Glaude). On this final day of Kwanzaa we live the 7 principles with Angela Douglas Co-Director of Vera House Inc. Without unity, we cannot begin our most important work, but without faith we cannot sustain it. Unity brings us together and harnesses our strength, but faith in each other and the Good, the Right, the Beautiful inspires and sustains the coming together and the commitment to take the work to its end.(Maulana Karenga)

Kwnazaa Day 6 Kuumba/Creativity Living the Seven Principles with Carrie Mae Weems.

Kwanzaa Day 6 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. “Kuumba (Creativity) logically follows from and is required by the principle of Nia. It is a commitment to being creative within the context of the national community vocation of restoring our people to their traditional greatness and thus leaving our community more beneficial and beautiful than we, i.e., each generation, inherited it. The principle has both a social and spiritual dimension and is deeply rooted in the social and sacred teachings of African societies”.(Maulana Karenga) Living the 7 Principles with Carrie Mae Weems.

Kwanza Day 5: Nia/Purpose


Kwanzaa Day 5 Nia/Purpose: To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.   Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world …. as we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. (Nelson Mandela) Living the 7 principles with Evelyn Ingram, Co-owner “The Castle”, and Director of Community Engagement for Wegmans Food Markets in Syracuse Metro Area.

Kwanzaa Day 4 Ujamaa/Cooperative Economics

Kwanzaa Day 4 Ujamaa Cooperative Economics: To build and maintain our own stores, shops and other businesses and to profit from them together.. One of the ways black communities, in particular, can prosper, is if individuals support these entrepreneurs in the community. It’s an immigrant tradition. This is one way for the community to grow, create and generate new wealth. I love the idea of cash mobs, so you and 10 of your friends decide that you are going to spend each to make a small-business person happy. The big- box stores can wait. Living the 7 principles of Kwanzaa with Davine Bey, Director of Talent Management Syracuse University

Kwanzaa Day 3 Ujima/Collective Work and Responsibility with Baye Muhammad CEO, Rochester Economic Development Corp.

Ujima/Collective Work and Responsibility To build and maintain our community together and make our brother’s and sister’s problems our problems and to solve them together. We are living the seven principles with Baye Muhammad, CEO of REDCO, Rochester Economic Development Corporation
