Join The Harambee Connection as the Voice of Umoja, with Discussions for Empowerment and Liberation engaging in African Conscious Thought and Spirituality and Action. Cultivating an acute sense of the Sacred best describes the flow of our discussion and presentation on this program.   First, we give recognition to the passing of Jefferson Thomas, one of the original 'Little Rock Nine' students.  We honor the memory and testament of one who has shared his ambition and commitment with self determination in spite of many of life's obstacles.  May the legend of his life live on.   We further in our discussion as we look an issue which we need to take a closer look at.  The question of whether or not the Black on Black marriage is dying; The value of Black relationships; and how we need to regain the grip on our Identity... We unfold the concepts, which we have in many ways in the past (and still for some in the present) have been defined by, that being through Caucasian rituals and ceremonies. What we presented as an answer & response to this is that we need to reconnect to 'OUR' Values & Principles in African Centeredness and having an understanding towards defining our conditions. One of they key points in recognizing where we are in our relationships and where we stand within an African centered concept is knowing that when we embrace the foundations of Maat, we can then as a healthier(African Centered)people serve the relationships we are in with each other, as these relationships are what  serves the Culture/Village. The male/female (relationships) serves Maat. Maat serves the culture. The culture nurtures and is nurturing to the relationship. The relationship is the seed that the culture grows from.   The later part of our discussion reflected on some of our presentations and teachings of Being and Becoming a Tree of Life.
