    I know I should have put this in the 'Honoring Our Ancestors' forum, but I felt that it would get more attention in the Open Forum.

    Is anyone celebrating Kwanzaa? I just thought that I would ask this question, because this is the first year that I will celebrate and embrace it, not to mention not let go of it.

    My celebration will be a success............because I am celebrating it at an AME church. Also, I will be around other youth, giving me the chance to unify (in the name of Umoja) amongst my youth, speak out to them, and we can all fellowship and have a great time!

    I wish you a Blessed Kwanzaa by BK Sistah/Queen!

    Happy Kwanzaa all...today's focus is on the principle of Ujima, collective work and responsibility. To build and maintain our community together and make our brother's and sister's problems our problems, and to solve them together...

    Today's featured Kwanzaa principle is UJAMAA (Cooperative Economics). Let's think about how we can cooperatively work together with each other to restore our community's Economy.
