This date is the third day of Kwanzaa: The day focuses on Ujima, or collective work and responsibility in Swahili.
The third principle of the Nguzo Saba is a commitment to active and informed togetherness on a subject of common interest. It also recognizes the need for collective work and struggles without which progress is impossible and liberation unthinkable.
Akoma ntoaso-the Adinkra (picture) symbolizes shared effort and obligation. Ujima focuses on African freedom as indivisible, active cooperation, and the challenge of culture and history.
Kwanzaa a celebration of family, community, and culture
