Kwanzaa is for ALL of us.

Kwanzaa is for ALL the time.  

Kwanzaa is gratitude, reflection and radical self care.  

Kwanzaa is healing, reinvention and identity.

Kwanzaa is history and Kwanzaa is now.  It creates space for knowing ourselves, our ancestors, our futures.  

"It is a special and unique time to remember and honor our ancestors; to reflect on what it means to be African and human in the most expansive and meaningful sense; and to reaffirm the sacred beauty and goodness of ourselves and the rightfulness of our relentless struggle to be ourselves and free ourselves and contribute to an ever-expanding realm of freedom, justice and caring in the world. And Kwanzaa is a special and unique time and panAfrican space to recommit ourselves to our highest values that teach us to live our lives, do our work, and wage our struggles in dignityaffirming, life-enhancing, and world-preserving ways as we continue forward on the upward paths of our honored ancestors."
