OUR COMMON GROUND with Janice Graham

Heri za Kwanzaa 2019

Heri za Kwanzaa !!!
Kwanzaa brings a cultural message which speaks to the best of what it means to be African and human in the fullest sense.

If we strive to embrace the N’Guzo Saba (the7-Priniciples) from which the holiday is built, incorporate them into our lives, our community activism and our relationships one to the other, we can model for our children the best that is us. I urge you to bring that good into focus as we suffer this economic genocide, body politic failure and this civil war in this country.

The holiday presents an opportunity for us as family and community to create a cultural tradition which reflects the best of African thought and practice in its reaffirmation of the dignity of the human person in community and culture, the well-being of family and community, the integrity of the environment and our kinship with it, and the rich resource and meaning of a people’s culture.

What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer; a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy-a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States, at this very hour.

“Sankofa” teaches us that we must go back to our roots in order to move forward. That is, we should reach back and gather the best of what our past has to teach us, so that we can achieve our full potential as we move forward. Whatever we have lost, forgotten, forgone, or been stripped of can be reclaimed, revived, preserved, and perpetuated.
