Weeklong Celebration of Kwanzaa Starts Wednesday

Today is the first day of Kwanzaa. The week-long celebration uses seven principles to honor the African-American Heritage of family, community and culture.

Tonight thousands across the U.S. will celebrate the first principle called -- umoja (oo-mo-jah) unity -- which stresses the importance of togetherness of the family and community.

One principle is celebrated each night. Kwanzaa ends January first.
