Kwanzaa is an African-American and Pan-African holiday that celebrates family, community, and culture. It is observed from December 26 through January 1 and its origins may be found in the first harvest celebrations of Africa, from which this holiday takes its name. Kwanzaa is derived from the phrase, “matunda ya kwanza,” which means “first fruits” in Swahili, a Pan-African tongue that is the most widely spoken language of Africa. The first-fruits celebrations are recorded in African history dating back to Ancient Egypt and Nubia, with references, both ancient and modern, appearing in other classical African civilizations, such as Ashantiland and Yorubaland, and among societies as large as empires…
Kwanzaa was conceived and developed in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Ron Karenga, an author, and scholar-activist who stresses the need to preserve, continually revitalize and promote African American culture.Post Views: 341
IF YOU THINK THE SYSTEM of CHATTEL SLAVERY in AMERICA WAS JUST ABOUT ECONOMICS; THEN YOU ARE MISSING THE BOAT.By blackreality — 10 months ago
In his book, Between the World and Me,
Ta-Nehisi Coates states “You must resist the common urge toward the comforting narrative of divine law, toward fairy tales that imply some irrepressible justice. The enslaved were not bricks in your road, and their lives were not chapters in your redemptive history. They were people turned to fuel for the American machine. Enslavement was not destined to end, and it is wrong to claim our present circumstance—no matter how improved—as the redemption for the lives of people who never asked for the posthumous, untouchable glory of dying for their children. Our triumphs can never compensate for this.”
The Black Reality Think Tank will discuss many of the “foundational bricks” supporting the enslavement of African people in America. Host

Why are most Black Church congregations, female? Where are the brothers?
According to Leon Podles, the origins of the problem go back much farther than most people suspect. Author of The Church Impotent: The Feminization of Christianity (1999), Podles theorizes that religion has lost some important traits that, if regained, would give men much more to identify with and would perhaps precipitate their return.
