“Kuumba” means creativity in Swahili and is the sixth principle of Kwanzaa, an African American celebration of family, community, and culture. The purpose of kuumba is to use our creativity to enrich and beautify our communities. Kwanzaa was created by Dr. Maulana Karenga, an Eastern Shore native, in 1966 as part of the black liberation movements happening in the United States during that time. Kwanzaa occurs from December 26th to January 1st.
