“Nia” (Purpose) – Today’s Principle For Kwanzaa [VIDEO]

The name Kwanzaa has its origins in the Swahili phrase “matunda ya kwanza” that means “first fruits”. The celebration of Kwanzaa with family is done in a variety of ways from storytelling, African drums, poetry, and a traditional meal. On each of the seven nights, the family gathers and a child lights one of the candles on the Kinara (which is the candleholder), then one of the seven principles is discussed.

Today we recognize the principle “Nia” where we make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.

Join The People’s Station 93.7 WBLK tonight at 7 at the Museum of Science when we welcome the founder of Kwanzaa to Buffalo Dr. Maulana Karenga.

Is your family celebrating Kwanzaa? To recognize and practice Kwanzaa is to Know Thyself!
