Kwanzaa starts today! For those that don't know much about the holiday, it's a week-long celebration honoring African heritage and African-American culture. Created in 1966 by Maulana Karenga, Kwanzaa honors seven core principles: unity (umoja), self-determination (kujichagulia), collective work and responsibility (ujima), cooperative economics (ujamaa), purpose (nia), creativity (kuumba) and faith (imani).
