In his new book, author Jesse Sharpe merges the Nguzu Saba (N-goo-zoo Sah-ba) and the implementation of the seven Kwanzaa principles not only to contribute to the growth of a chapter, but also to ground it in both a functional and cultural perspective. The author’s emphasis on membership respect and celebration of the person are major themes throughout the handbook and tie its significance with a one-of-a-kind holistic approach.

Until now, most books on chapter leadership focus solely on operational and strategic planning, marketing and PR, and membership recruitment and retention. Based on the seven principles of Kwanzaa, “The Seven Principles of Chapter Success: Tapping the Power Within Your Organization” is a comprehensive and important milestone.

Stylish in format, articulate in expression, panoramic in scope, and provocative in discussion, the handbook’s principles (unity [Umoja], identity [Kujichagulia], collective work and responsibility [Ujima], cooperative economics [Ujamaa], purpose [Nia], creativity [Kuumba], and faith [Imani]) detail an incomparable, rich, African-centered perspective on value. Sharpe’s emphasis on chapter member respect and an organization’s celebration of the person is a major theme throughout and ties its significance with a one-of-a-kind holistic approach.
