By ONME News Review

Here are the latest Kwanzaa events happening from Dec. 26 to Jan. 1 throughout California where different groups will celebrate the seven principles of Kwanzaa for seven days.

Kwanzaa, meaning "first fruits" is a reflective celebration of African-based principles that originated in the United States in 1966 by founder Dr. Maulana Karenga; it is a celebration of community, family and culture, established as a means to help African Americans reconnect with their roots and heritage. For seven days the Nguzo Saba, Kwanzaa’s seven principles are celebrated – Umoja (unity), Kujichagulia (self-determination), Ujima (collective work and responsibility), Ujamaa (cooperative economics), Nia (purpose), Kuumba (creativity) and Imani (faith).
