Happy Kwanzaa! Day 4, UJAMAA

KWANZAA is a seven day cultural holiday honored in the African and African-American communities, in celebration of their culture, family, and history. It is observed in the US from 26th December – 1st January. The name Kwanzaa, or “matunda ya kwanza” in the Swahili language, translates to “first fruits” and it signifies the first fruits of the harvest.

Tonight, 29th December we light the second red candle and discuss the principle of UJAMAA representing COOPERATIVE ECONOMICS, which teaches us to build and maintain our own businesses and to profit from them together.

©️2020 CSNelson, Don’t Forget the Half



You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
