The Obamas Extend Kwanzaa Greetings
President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama send a special message to everyone celebrating Kwanzaa this year.
“As families and communities across our country come together today to light the Kinara, our family sends our hopes for a prosperous and healthy new year,” the POTUS said in a statement released by the White House.
Today marks the first day of the weeklong celebration of African-American culture, which honors the seven principle of unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith.
“Though each principle represents the essence of this holiday, they also represent the shared values that bind us as Americans,” Obama added.
The Black holiday, established by Maulana Karenga in 1966, is celebrated from December 26 through January 1st.
