Values and value orientation are important, as Kawaicla philosophy teaches, values are categories of commitment, priorities and excellence which indicate and enhance human possibilities.
Kwanzaa puts forth seven key values, the Nguzo Saba (The Seven Principles) which offer standards of excellence and models of possibilities which aid in building and reinforcing family, community and culture.
Kwanzaa organizes people, gives them a chance to gather, reinforce the bonds between them, and focus on positive cultural values and practice. In reinforcing the bonds between us and reaffirming us in the best of our values, we are strengthened in our struggle for a morally grounded and empowered community, a just and good society and a world of peace and freedom.
