Ujima △ Collective Work & Responsibility
To build and maintain our community together and make our brother’s and sister’s problems our problems and to solve them together (Karenga, 1966).
Today marked the third day of the seven day Kwanzaa celebration. Ujima refers to collective work and responsibility. Within a community, every person matters. Their problems become my problems and mine become theirs. Stronger together, we can accomplish great things when we accept and honor our commitments to helping one another. Say it loud. Say it proud. Black Lives Matter.
