UJIMA (green) – for the future, working together…African Americans should work on their problems together.
We didn't have our candle lighting ceremony tonight as a family, but I did spend the evening with my Dad salvaging photos from my Grandmother's house fire last year. We worked together scanning, sorting, cropping and scrapbooking over 108 photos in one night.
Earlier in the day, I helped my daughter think through some ideas to generate revenue at her daytime job. So, I lived out the Kwanzaa principle of of Ujima...salvaging photos, memories & newspaper clippings for future generations and working to solve problems together with my daughter.
Here's a photo of the family working together to create Zawadi (gifts) a few days ago.
