Kwanzaa is the only Pan-African cultural holiday widely recognized. Why aren’t more of us observing it?
A lighthearted discussion on Christmas. We share accounts of our personal socialization of the holiday.
Nguzo Saba – Imani
Imani [“Faith”]. What does it mean to us as a people? What does exercising faith look like?
Nguzo Saba – Kuumba
A conversation exploring the use of Kuumba [“Creativity”] to educate and empower our people with @thespokenwordexchange Calvin ‘Made-Son’ Early and Arsimmer McCoy.
Nguzo Saba – Nia
On this episode of Kujenga, we explore the principle Nia [“Purpose”].
Nguzo Saba – Ujamaa
As Alkebu-Lan [“African”] people we are primarily consumers and not producers. Our economic power has been severely stunted by imperialist aggression and violence. We must say no more! It is time for us to focus on Ujamaa [“Cooperative Economics”] and learn what it takes to be a powerful force.
Nguzo Saba – Ujima
Ujima [“Collective Work and Responsibility”] is a major key to us lifting ourselves out of the quagmire we find ourselves as a people. The principle of Ujima supports the fundamental assumption that African is not just an identity, but also a destiny and duty, i.e., a responsibility.
Nguzo Saba – Kujichagulia
As Alkebu-Lan people, we face challenges that hinder us from speaking for ourselves, naming ourselves, creating for ourselves and defining ourselves. This episode explores individual as well as collective paths that we may take to achieve Kujichagulia [“Self-determination’] as a people.
Nguzo Saba – Umoja
The first principle of Nguzo Saba is Umoja [“Unity”]. This episode explores and promotes Umoja within our melanated family, community, and nation.
