“The Kwanzaa principle of Kuumba is derived from a Bantu concept which is a little stronger than the English word “creativity”, Kuumba is perhaps the most deeply African of all the seven principles of Kwanzaa. The word Kuumba is used at almost the level of creation as, for example, when we say “God created heaven and earth in six days. Kuumba operates almost at the level of divine creativity, creating “something out of nothing”. This is an exceptionally high level of creativity and innovation.
