Kwanzaa 2020: Day 05

Nia: Purpose

The black candle, then the left most red candle, then the right most green candle, then the 2nd red candle at the left hand side and lastly the next green candle are lit in the same sequence. This represents the 5th principle – Nia (Purpose) meaning to  work collectively to build communities that will restore the greatness of African people. Members discuss the fifth principle and share the Unity cup. The day ends with extinguishing the candles.
