Maulana Ron Karenga, originated on December 26, 1966. Kwanzaa takes place from December 26 to January 1. While Hanukkah celebrations light a nine-candle menorah, Kwanzaa celebrations incorporate a kinara which holds seven candles. The seven-day celebration delivers a theme of Dont forget where we came from and envisions better futures with construction of strong communities through love, perseverance and support. The name Kwanzaa is derived from matunda ya kwanza, a Swahili phrase for first fruits for the harvest and is based on traditional African harvest festivals. Its a time for celebration, introspection, observation and connection with values that originate in black culture. Each of the seven days represents one of the seven principles or (Nguzo Saba) of Kwanzaa. 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.
