    in Culture

    I know I am gonna sound like the grinch who told yall the truth about Kwanzaa, but somebody gotta do it.

    I see many of our people celebrating Kwanzaa and it bought up many questions. For instance, do you really understand who created this holiday for black amerikkkans and why? Yes, I understand the seven principles of Kwanzaa are important to follow HOWEVER don't we already have principles we are supposed to follow and celebrate? Did we forget about the 42 Ma’at Laws/Principles ?

    That being said, I would LOVE to hear your opinion on the topic of Kwanzaa and if you chose to celebrate it and why.

    As the season of Kwanzaa comes to an end, tonight's "MESSAGE AND THE MUSIC" show is dedicated to the message of Unity, Cooperation and Group Economics through Faith, Creativity, Self-Determination and Purpose.

    The seven principles of Kwanzaa are:

    Umoja (oo-MO-jah):  Unity stresses the importance of togetherness for the family and the community, which is reflected in the African saying, "I am We," or "I am because We are."

    Kujichagulia (koo-gee-cha-goo-LEE-yah): Self-Determination requires that we define our common interests and make decisions that are in the best interest of our family and community.

    Ujima (oo-GEE-mah) Collective Work and Responsibility reminds us of our obligation to the past, present and future, and that we have a role to play in the community, society, and world.

    Ujamaa (oo-JAH-mah) Cooperative economics emphasizes our collective economic strength and encourages us to meet common needs through mutual  

    Nia (NEE-yah) Purpose encourages us to look within ourselves and to set personal goals that are beneficial to the Kuumba (koo-OOM-bah) Creativity makes use of our creative energies to build and maintain a strong and vibrant community. 

    Imani (ee-MAH-nee) Faith focuses on honoring the best of our traditions, draws upon the best in ourselves, and helps us strive for a higher level of life for humankind, by affirming our self-worth and confidence in our ability to succeed and triumph.
