Always thankful to be a part of the Greensboro’s Kwanzaa Collective. This past year marked the 50th anniversary of Kwanzaa, a week long celebration running from December 26th to January 1st.

Each day a different principle of Kwanzaa is recognized. The seven principles celebrated are:

  • Umoja (Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.
  • Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define and name ourselves, as well as to create 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 our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.

It was a rich and powerful experience we were lucky to capture.

So great to spend time with the VanSluytman family in the Old Salem Historic District of Winston-Salem, NC. Especially when they’re from my hometown of St. Thomas, VI! It was great to find some countrymen to bond with!
