The Kwanzaa holiday honors the Nguzo Saba, or Seven Principles, of African culture. These are Umoja (unity), Kujichagulia (self-determination), Ujima (collective work and responsibility), Ujamaa (cooperative economics), Nia (purpose), Kuumba (creativity), and Imani (faith).

Use the below images in your Facebook and Instagram posts with messages around community, perseverance, and prosperity. Here are some example messages:

  • The candles of Kwanzaa remind us that we shine brightest when we shine together.
  • May Kwanzaa be your inspiration to give thanks for the community, prosperity, and love in your life
  • During these seven days of Kwanzaa, be reminded that you are never alone.
  • Wishing you peace, prosperity, and pride in honor of the Kwanzaa traditions.
  • Kwanzaa reminds us to remember where we came from and have courage in where we’re going.
  • During Kwanzaa, take some time to think about what your guiding principles are and how you can apply them in the year to come.

Without further ado…
