As the season of Kwanzaa comes to an end, tonight's "MESSAGE AND THE MUSIC" show is dedicated to the message of Unity, Cooperation and Group Economics through Faith, Creativity, Self-Determination and Purpose.

The seven principles of Kwanzaa are:

Umoja (oo-MO-jah):  Unity stresses the importance of togetherness for the family and the community, which is reflected in the African saying, "I am We," or "I am because We are."

Kujichagulia (koo-gee-cha-goo-LEE-yah): Self-Determination requires that we define our common interests and make decisions that are in the best interest of our family and community.

Ujima (oo-GEE-mah) Collective Work and Responsibility reminds us of our obligation to the past, present and future, and that we have a role to play in the community, society, and world.

Ujamaa (oo-JAH-mah) Cooperative economics emphasizes our collective economic strength and encourages us to meet common needs through mutual  

Nia (NEE-yah) Purpose encourages us to look within ourselves and to set personal goals that are beneficial to the Kuumba (koo-OOM-bah) Creativity makes use of our creative energies to build and maintain a strong and vibrant community. 

Imani (ee-MAH-nee) Faith focuses on honoring the best of our traditions, draws upon the best in ourselves, and helps us strive for a higher level of life for humankind, by affirming our self-worth and confidence in our ability to succeed and triumph.
