50 years later, black people should give Kwanzaa a second look


Created 50 years ago, the much maligned, misunderstood holiday is back—not only this holiday season but to help black America precisely at the time we need it most. Simply put, the African-American made holiday–now practiced by people of African descent around the world—is made for the times.

And times are hard

Kwanzaa, the celebration of African and African-American culture, begins today and goes for a week, ending on Jan. 1, created in 1966 by California college professor Maulana Karenga, a different value is celebrated on each of seven nights: unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith. Each value is marked by lighting candles on a holder called a kinara; as Karenga put it in a 2013 interview, "the celebration of Kwanzaa is about embracing ethical principles and values, so the goodness of the world can be shared and enjoyed by us and everyone."
