Ujamaa, celebrated on the fourth day of Kwanzaa (December 29th), is a principle that holds significant importance in the festival’s celebration. This Swahili word translates to “Cooperative Economics.” Ujamaa is not just a principle but a practical approach to building and maintaining our own businesses and profiting from them together. Let’s delve deeper into Ujamaa:
Ujamaa is a powerful principle that serves as a call to action for economic solidarity and self-sufficiency within the African-American community. It’s about building and sustaining an economy that reflects the community’s values and serves its needs, thus ensuring that the benefits of economic growth and success are shared among all its members. This principle is integral to Kwanzaa as it not only celebrates African heritage but also promotes practical steps towards a prosperous and equitable community.
