Day 1 of Kwanzaa represents Umoja meaning maintaining unity as a family, community, and race of people. Black candle, placed right in the middle of red and green candles in the Kinara, is lit on the very first day of the festival. The Umoja (Unity cup) is filled with a liquid, like water, and is passed to all the members present.
