For seven days, Kwanzaa promotes the focus on seven principles: unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith, though it's not a religious holiday. According to the official website, these values are called the Nguzo Saba, which in Swahili means the Seven Principles. Developed by Dr. Karenga, the website states that Nguzo Saba stand at the heart of the origin and meaning of Kwanzaa.
Kwanzaa runs through January 1.
