Karenga is professor and chair of the Department of Africana Studies at California State University, Long Beach. He also is the founder and creator of  the Pan-African holiday Kwanzaa, an annual weeklong celebration of black history, culture, and values; and the Nguzo Saba, the seven principles the fuel the celebration.
