Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics) reaffirms the ethics of the harvest, shared work and shared wealth. It thus is opposed to in-equitable distribution of wealth, and re-source monopoly and plunder by the rich and powerful. And it teaches us to privilege the poor and vulnerable, and uphold the right of all peoples to live lives of freedom, dignity, well-being and ongoing development. Ujamaa also urges us to give rightful recognition and support to the small farmers and farm workers of the world for the vital role they play in feeding and sustaining peo-ple and the planet, especially in the context of the globalization of agriculture and its destructive effects on the lives and lands of the people.
Kwanzaa was created to reaffirm and restore our rootedness in African culture. It is, therefore, an expression of recovery and reconstruction of African culture which was being conducted in the general context of the Black Liberation Movement of the '60's and in the specific context of The Organization Us, the founding organization of Kwanzaa and the authoritative keeper of its tradition. Secondly, Kwanzaa was created to serve as a regular communal celebration to reaffirm and reinforce the bonds between us as a people. It was designed to be an ingathering to strengthen community and reaffirm common identity, purpose and direction as a people and a world community. Thirdly, Kwanzaa was created to introduce and reinforce the Nguzo Saba (the Seven Principles.) These seven communitarian African values are: Umoja (Unity), Kujichagulia (Self-Determination), Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility), Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics), Nia (Purpose), Kuumba (Creativity), and Imani (Faith). This stress on the Nguzo Saba was at the same time an emphasis on the importance of African communitarian values in general, which stress family, community and culture and speak to the best of what it means to be African and human in the fullest sense. And Kwanzaa was conceived as a fundamental and important way to introduce and reinforce these values and cultivate appreciation for them.

Rick Santorum is a case study in the durability and legitimacy of retail politics, the face-to-face contact Iowans say make their state special.
He is the last of the Social conservatives have embraced then discarded a string of anti-Romneys: Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry and Herman Cain. A finish in tier there could underscore the value of the retail politics style that other candidates have abandoned in favour of TV appearances, social media and campaign commercials.
Seven days of Kwanzaa
Umoja (Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.
Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves stand up.
Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility): To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers' and sisters' problems our problems, and to solve them together.
Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.
Nia (Purpose): To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.
Kuumba (Creativity): To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.
Imani (Faith): To believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.

One of my facebook friends posted a photo of a watch she purchased as a Christmas gift for her Dad. It was a beautiful timepiece and the packaging was just as classy. Not only did she post the photo, she gave a little narrative about the watch. You see my friend was purposefully purchasing from black owned businesses that year. She was practicing Ujamaa, one of the 7 principles of Kwanzaa. Ujamaa is all about cooperative economics. The art of building and maintaining our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them.
So, it turns out that the Founder and President of this awesome watch company is a young black man. I was geeked to say the least. I started researching this Dude online. His name is Randy Williams and he lives in Viginia. And, the story behind the inception of his company is just as rich as the brand he has built and continues to cultivate.
Randy, successfully funded his first large manufacturing run through a program called kickstarter. When you get a chance, check out is website www.TalleyandTwine.com and check out the video in his successful kickstarter campaign that raised over $29,000 Talley&Twine Kickstarter campaign .

Today's guest Mr George Subira was responsible for the very First Kwanzaa program that was in the U.S. and today we will focus on Ujamaa and Black Economic Development. The Fourth Principle is Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics) is essentially a commitment to the practice of shared social wealth and the work necessary to achieve it. It grows out of the fundamental communal concept that social wealth belongs to the masses of people who created it and that no one should have such an unequal amount of wealth that gives them the capacity to impose unequal, exploitative or oppressive relations on others.
