While my Jewish friends are winding down from Hanukah and our own family revs up for Christmas, I’m reminded of the 3rd, most mysterious holiday celebrated in December: Kwanzaa.
My Uncle is the only family member I can think of that has consistantly celebrated Kwanzaa since it’s inception. He’s a man who’s very dedicated to our African heritage and our African-American history. A man who’s been so passionate about the edcation of children of color, he’s gone from teacher, to principal, and is on the road to Superintendent in and inner-city school system. When I think of Kwanzaa I always think of him.
There is still little known about this meaningful holiday created right here in the U.S., and I love that Degree Search has released an infographic to help those that would like to know more about the history and significance of Kwanzaa.
