    This principle is speaking I suspect, for the COLLECTIVE...

    Yet, I think too often it is applied to the INDIVIDUAL level of lived experience.

    And this is where problems have arisen.

    To speak for, name and determine for OUR SELVES vs. MY SELF.

    It makes sense of ORDER following Umoja- UNITY because once that concept is firmly in place, this second principle stands to reason. The inherent problem we seem to continue to have is one of UMOJA....because of the levels of dis-unity, KUJICHAGULIA is applied to individuals and not the group.

    For me...UMOJA is about UNITY WITHIN THE AFREEKAN COMMUNITY. It does not seek alliance or allegiance with any other group. Knowing, overstanding an practicing this allows for KUJICHAGULIA to be practiced from a framework of COLLECTIVE SELF DETERMINATION as opposed to the INDIVIDUAL.


    Just some thoughts as I reflect on todays Principle...KUJICHAGULIA

    M.E.

    My husband and I are celebrating without our kinara, etc. as we couldn't find one from a Black-owned company in time for Kwanzaa. We finally found quite a few at the Black-owned Sankore Press website. I wanted to share just in case anyone is considering purchasing theirs for next year's Kwanzaa celebration.
