If someone asks you today, "Habari Ghani?" respond by saying, "Umoja." On this first day of Kwanzaa -- an African American celebration of family, culture and community --the focus of the day is Unity.
Umoja (unity), the first principle of Kwanzaa, means "To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race."
Be sure to vist Bay Area Kwanzaa (http://baykwanzaa.blogspot.com) for today's Kwanzaa events in the Bay Area.
Great celebrations are taking place in Oakland, San Francisco and Sausalito.
