We are saddened by the recent passing of Ms. Danielle Brown. She was a rockstar here at CEC and helped to start many impactful programs for children and families. We appreciate her tireless commitment to the Flint community and beyond. Although she is gone physically let us remember how she lived without limits and heart for serving others. We will be doing something permanent at the building to recognize her legacy. #restinpeace

#happykwanzaa this celebration of includes an acknowledgment and honoring of its seven principles, known as Nguzu Saba. Each day of Kwanzaa emphasizes a new principle, and the evening candle-lighting ceremony provides an opportunity to discuss the principle and its meaning. The first night the black candle in the center is lit and the principle of Umoja (Unity) is discussed.

The principles include:

Umoja (Unity): maintaining unity as a family, community, and race of people.
Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): defining, naming, creating, and speaking for ourselves.
Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility): building and maintaining our community—solving problems together.
Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics: building and maintaining retail stores and other businesses and to profit from these ventures.
Nia (Purpose): work collectively to build communities that will restore the greatness of African people.
Kuumba (Creativity): to find new, innovative ways to leave communities of African descent in more beautiful and beneficial ways than the community inherited.
Imani (Faith): the belief in God, family, heritage, leaders, and others that will leave to the victory of Africans around the world.
