Kwanzaa 2012: Day 3–UJIMA

HAPPY KWANZAA, everyone!

Day 3, December 28 – UJIMA (collective work and responsibility)
To build and maintain our community together and make our sisters’ and brothers; problems our problems and to solve them together.


This adinkra symbol, Finhankra, represents safety and security, brotherhood and solidarity.

Let me all ways, as well as I can, recognize and fulfill my responsibility to myself and to those around me. May I find strength in the performance of my duty, and may that strength be increased by sharing it with the members of all my communities.

(Affirmations courtesy of the book Practicing Kwanzaa Year Round, by Gwynelle Dismukes)
