Rob Jackson is often busy and needed a reliable lighting that could keep up with his lifestyle. He is also a proud African American who embraces many of the Kwanzaa principles which serve as symbols of pride and empowerment among Black people in the United States. The principle Ujamaa stems from the ideology of economic independence. Focusing on this principle in particular he founded Ujamaa Lighting.
