Have you ever wondered what Kwanzaa was really about? This morning on “NewsOne Now,”  Jessica Smith of Culture Kingdom Kids discussed the true meaning of the holiday and broke down the symbolism behind the kinara candles, corn, and the unity cup.

And, yes, you can give gifts, too. The main focus is to buy black-owned or try DIY. “The purpose of that is the focuses of Kwanzaa are heritage and education… and economics,” Smith said, “so you want to support a black company… For Kwanzaa you can give a book on African-American heritage so they’re building their library that way, or you can make a gift.”

Watch to the entire clip below.

Be sure to tune in to NewsOne Now with Roland Martin, weekdays at 7 a.m. EST.
