MORE ABOUT THE PRINCIPLE OF UJIMA

According to The Official Kwanzaa Website.org, the third principle of Kwanzaa is Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility) which is a commitment to active and informed togetherness on matters of common interest.

Ujima is recognition and respect for the fact that without collective work and struggle, progress is impossible and liberation unthinkable. Ujima supports the fundamental assumption that “African” is not just an identity, but also a destiny, a duty, a responsibility.

Ujima, as principle and practice, also means that we accept the fact that we are collectively responsible for our failures and setbacks as well as our victories and achievements. This holds true not only on the national level, but also on the level of family, organization, and smaller units. Self-conscious and committed people shape the future with their own minds and hands and share its hardships and benefits together.
