Just a few photos from this years Karamu. I've mentioned in a previous post (read all Kwanzaa posts here) that we host our Karamu on January 1 instead of the traditional December 31. We hadn't planned to show The Black Candle, MK Asante's new feature length film about Kwanzaa, (see the trailer here), but there are always a few people who hang out for 'the party after the party' so we watched it in the evening.
The children were at the center of things.
It was a potluck in the spirit of Ujima.
Wangari made salmon, Kenyan spicey rice and white rice. Naomi's Liberian collard greens were made with fish and chicken.
Such 'Kuumba' (creativity)!
[Oh, what the hay! I guess I'll toss in a few sisterlocks hair photos for the start of the new year anyway!]
