Dr. Maulana Karenga, a Professor and the chairman of Africana Studies at California State University not only created the Holiday celebration of Kwanzaa, he also created the NGUZO SABA guiding principles to represent the seven values of African culture that help build and reinforce community among African-Americans. Students should be challenged to apply the principles to their everyday lives in ways that enhance the communities where they live, learn and play.
