As we strive to exemplify the NGUZO SABA, or the 7 Kwanzaa Principles throughout the year, may this directory be a tool that will draw our communities of color closer in the name of collective commerce. May we continue forth in an effort to assist in the building of symbiotic relationships between Chicago based communities through mutual patronage.
