Nguzo Saba 2015
50th Anniversary Conference

Thursday thru Sunday, September 24-27, 2015
(Opening reception, Thursday, September 24, 7:00pm)

Join us In celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Nguzo Saba (The Seven Principles) and the Organization Us. The Nguzo Saba conceived and developed by Dr. Maulana Karenga, professor and chair of the Department of Africana Studies and executive director of the African American Cultural Center (Us) are not onIy the core values of the pan-African holiday Kwanzaa, but also an African value system embraced by Africans throughout the world community. The Nguzo Saba are used as cultural grounding, value orientation, programmatic development and names for groups, Institutions and persons. It is an enduring legacy worthy of celebration, preservation and practice.

The Nguzo Saba 2015 Conference will present models of excellence and best practices from persons and organizations around the country who use the Nguzo Saba and Kawaida philosophy in which they are rooted for cultural grounding and value orientation in a wide variety of areas including: community and public education, rites of passage and youth programs, family and male/female relations, reparations, spirituality and ethics, economic development, political organization, creative production, and psychological well-being, environmental ethics and community and civic engagement and struggle.
