    Seven Days, Seven Principles... It's Kwanzaa Time All Year-Round!

    I thoroughly recommend this book to everyone! Were I able to give it 6 stars, I would have given it 7. This book is not simply a nice read... it is an Absolute Need. Seriously, this piece comes at a time when our communities & our families are in dire need of self-realization and a reconnection to the roots and core values that make African people unique. One of the things that was most impressive to me was the level of research that was done to compile this work. Who knew that so many people in so many countries across the world are celebrating Kwanzaa and adapting it's principles. Myself and my mate have even discussed beginning to travel each year during the holiday so that we may expose this tradition to our children as it is celebrated throughout the world. If you have never celebrated Kwanzaa, have celebrated all your life or think that this book is not for you... Buy this book! It is for you and you will absolutely not be dissapointed. The Resource pages toward the back are worth the purchase alone.

    An Historic (from soup to nuts) Kwanzaa Manual

    Talk about a complete guide, no stone is unturned. Maitefa Angaza has written an historical publication including a network of supportive references and resources. This is a true from soup to nuts Kwanzaa manual. Yes with recipes to boot!! It documents the first Kwanzaa celebration and definitively gives a thorough history on how and who initially promoted the seven day holiday across the nation and around the world. The author's own family Kwanzaa celebrations span decades. Her own family unit is itself a living example of how practicing The Nguzo Saba, 'the seven principles of Kwanzaa' created by Dr. Ron Karenga 'the creator of Kwanzaa' builds and strengthens an African American community and therefore gives first-hand credibility to her published work. Raise your unity cup to this, historically authentic and inspirational guide on Kwanzaa, the nation building holiday. In addition, I highly recommend 'Kwanzaa, From Holiday to Everyday' to all the educational institutions across the country, deflate the mystic and get it right.

    The Reason for the Season

    This book reminds us of how Kwanzaa is more than just another holiday season. It is a reminder of the ways in which we can celebrate our past, grow in the present and prepare for a greater future. Thank you Ms. Maitefa Angaza!
