Collective Work & Responsibility: 6 Stories from 2015 That Highlight the Kwanzaa Principle of Ujima

• Dec 31, 2015

Habari Ghani!

Monday was the third day of Kwanzaa and now we’re highlighting stories we covered this year that fall under the 3rd principle of 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.

In opposition to alienation and isolation from others, fostered fear and hatred for political purposes, and a vulgar individualism at the expense of others, the principle of Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility) teaches us the necessary and compelling commitment to work together to conceive and build the good community, society and world we want and deserve to live in. And this means cooperatively repairing and renewing the world.”- Dr. Maulana Karanga
