I agree with Hari Jones about celebrating Juneteenth, especially the fact that as Jones states “Certainly, informed and knowledgeable people should not celebrate the suppression of their own history. Juneteenth day is a de facto celebration of such suppression. Americans, especially Americans of African descent, should not celebrate when the enslaved were freed by someone else, because that’s not the accurate story. They should celebrate when the enslaved freed themselves, by saving the Union. Such freedmen were heroes, not spectators, and their story is currently being suppressed by the advocates of the Juneteenth national holiday.”

Let’s get this [Juneteenth info] right and leave room for the acknowledgement of the Gullah Wars falsely known by some as the Seminole Indian War. A War for freedom that led to the Civil War, it is Afrikan people who have to learn and tell our own true stories despite mainstream supported suppression thereof.

The Nsibidi Writing System!

2day is 7 Shefbdet 6252 Ujamaa/Cooperative Economics, make every Heru-sefek (Sat) on your smart phones & ecalendars reflect the principle of the day. The Nsibidi symbol of Togetherness, Sharing & Love!

http://nigerianwiki.com/wiki/Nsibidi

Nsibidi is an indigenous adaptable and fluid writing system of two dimensional signs, three dimensional forms of pictographs and ideographs and pantomimed gestures. It originated as an esoteric form of knowledge understood by a select group of people mostly members of a secret society in Southeastern Nigeria which some sources link to the Ejagham and later spread to Efik, Igbo, Ibibio, Efut, Annang and Banyang speaking areas.

The Meaning of Kwanzaa!

THE MEANING OF KWANZAA!

The word KWANZAA (K-wahn-zah) “is derived from the Swahili word KWANZA and is part of the phrase Matunda Ya Kwanza (first fruits).”  It is a time to celebrate the Afrikan in you, the good in you, the good you have done in your life, your thoughts, words and actions on behalf of your Afrikan humanity. KWANZAA is an Afrikan American holdiay that is full of Nia/Purpose. It is a week long celebration, from December 26th to January 1st, of the new Gregorian year. KWANZAA is not a Black Christmas!!!  KWANZAA  is about looking at your achievements (retrospection) and improving on what you have already accomplished (introspection), while celebrating your Afrikan ancestors, Afrikan people and Afrikan contributions to the human story.

  In 1966, Dr. Maulana Karenga’s Nia/Purpose was to create an “indigenous non-heroic Black holiday in the United States,” KWANZAA.  It is a holiday for Afrikan people of all locations, backgrounds and beliefs.  The roots of KWANZAA are continental Afrikan, but the branches and fruit are distinctly Afrikan American.  As the founder, Dr. Karenga sought to connect Afrikan people everywhere to our ancestral beginnings, it is this connection that makes KWANZAA a holiday of the first fruits.  Based on a direct transfer of knowledge coming out of the traditions of agricultural peoples of Afrika, who celebrated and gave thanks for harvests at designated times during the year, your present day Nia/Purpose is to continue this legacy by celebrating and giving thanks for what you have achieved at this point in your life.

The heart of KWANZAA is the NGUZO SABA (In-goo-zoh Sah-bah) or the Seven Principles. The seven principles can be practiced daily, since there are seven days in a week you can apply each principle to a day of the week and continue doing this throughout the year. This is a guaranteed strategy to keep you grounded and focused on your planned life goals or your  Nia/Purpose. Which principle would you practice today to reinforce your life’s Nia/Purpose? You can also, combine principles for one day, but there should never be a day that you go without acknowledging a personal effort to practice a principle of KWANZAA!

Read about two holiday alternative to misgiving for Afrikan people; Gye Nyame, and Umoja Karamu.

 

Both of these Pan-Afrikan celebrations may be used to reinforce the efforts of Afrikan ppl to continue acknowledging the life experiences of our Afrikan ancestors and elders as survivors.  Further, these two Pan-Afrikan celebrations constitute the making of connections towards continuing the legacies and solidifying relationships between young and old Afrikans as we strive to always survive under challenging life circumstances, events and plots against our existence.
