Kwanzaa: is observed from December 26th through January 1st. its focus is to pay tribute to the rich cultural roots of People of the African Diaspora.

Though first inspired by African-Americans, many of African descent celebrate this occasion today. Its reach has grown to include all whose roots are in the Motherland. Its’ concept is neither religious nor political, but is rooted strongly in a cultural awareness. This is not a substitute for Christmas; however, gifts may be exchanged with the principles of Nguzo Saba always in mind. Gifts are given to reinforce personal growth and achievement which benefits the collective community.

Black History Month

BEGINNING FEBRUARY 1ST until FEBRUARY 28TH MANY WILL CELEBRATE BLACK HISTORY MONTH, INCLUDING SPEAK TO ALL.  THROUGH OUT THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY SPEAK TO ALL WILL POST KNOW FACTS ABOUT AFRICAN AMERICANS PAST, and PRESENT,  so ON THIS FIRST DAY WE WILL INFORM YOU OF THE HISTORY OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH. 

Black History Month had its beginnings in 1926 in the United States, when historian  CARTER  G WOODSON  announced the second week of February to be “Negro History Week”. This week was chosen because it marked the birthday of both  FREDERICK DOUGLASS and ABRAHAM LINCOLON.   CARTER G. WOODSON created the holiday with the hopes that it will eventually be eliminated when black history became fundamental to American history, which as we know today has not been the case.    Negro History Week was met with enthusiastic response; it prompted the creation of black history clubs, an increase in interest among teachers, and interest from progressive whites.

UMOJA: The first principle of Kwaznaa, which means UNITY, To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race.

KUJICHAGULIA : The second principle of Kwanaa, meaning Self determination, To define ourseleves, name ourseleves, create for ourseleves, and speak for ourseleves.

Tomorrow on the third day of KWANZAA, I WILL POST THE THRID PRINCIPLE , SO STAY TUNED.
