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.

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.

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.

The African American celebration of Kwanzaa is from December 26 through January 1, and since its inception in 1966, has become widely practiced across the U.S. as a time of food, fellowship, and fun for those who appreciate the African cultural expressions of song and dance that reconnect us to our heritage. Kwanzaa is also a time where those who produce products may sell them at events as vendors in an open market style of selling reminicent of the African marketplace. It gives an opportunity for African American entrepreneurs to promote and sell products after the Christmas spending spree and still make money on the gift giving tradition of family and friends celebrating Kwanzaa. Started by Maulana Ron Karenga in 1966, Kwanzaa, although not a religious based holiday, promotes a set of seven principles to live by that are based on moral and ethical principles of a community that values the individual as part of a collective. Umoja, (Unity in Swahili) is the first principle. Today we look at those who are making efforts toward creating a stronger economic base using the principle of unity.
