    UJAMAA (00-JAH-MAH) COOPERATIVE ECONOMICSOut of the fundamental concepts of "African Communal Living" comes the fourth principle of Kwanzaa. In a community or family, wealth and resources should be shared. On the national level, cooperative economics can help us take physical control of own destinies. Birth and support Black businesses!!!

    On this day, ideas should be shared and discussed for cooperative economic efforts to provide for needs as related to housing, education, food, day care, health, transportation and other goods and services.

    Today, everyone should buy SOMETHING from a black owned business. This is how you properly celebrate this this day.
