USA TODAY - In the mid-'60s, Dr. Maulana Karenga created Kwanzaa, an observance that honors African heritage in African-American and Pan-African cultures.

From Dec. 26 to Jan. 1, these days are dedicated to the seven principles - Nguzo Saba - focusing on African philosophy that encompasses the mutual and interactive relationship with family, community, environment and the world.
