On the second day of Kwanzaa, December 27, we celebrate self-determination.
To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves and speak for ourselves.
Ahenwa, the Akan throne, is symbol of national identity, cultural groundedness and rightful governance.
Today we light a red candle symbolizing Kujichagulia, one of the Nguzo Saba (seven principles) that represent a guide for daily living to be practiced throughout the year.
Harambee! Let’s all pull together!
