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.
