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: 470

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad in his book “Message To The Blackman” states,
“The devils reared the poor so-called Negroes for 400 years and put fear in them when they were babies. They (the devils) kept them apart from their own kind coming in from abroad, so as to deprive them of any knowledge other than what he (the devil) has taught them.”
The book of Genesis in the Old Testament states, Genesis 15:13-14
13 Then the Lord said to him, “Know for certain that for four hundred years your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own and that they will be enslaved and mistreated there. 14 But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will come out with great possessions.”
