“Happy New Year! “

Spend the day at home with family and friends. Take this time to engage in quiet reflection, focus on what you have learned during the week of Kwanzaa, reflect on who you are, and maintain a quiet, humble, and calm attitude with regards to self and neighbors.

Keynote Speaker Chris Reynolds “Know Thyself” Campaign

To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.

To build and maintain

our community together and make our brothers’ and sisters’ problems our problems and to solve them together.

To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.

To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.
