The Kwanzaa Awards 2015 — Day 6: Kuumba means Creativity

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.

My Wheelhouse. Time and time again we have shown our power in the arts and all other forms of creativity. Creativity is our magnet, our conduit. Use it or Lose it. Black 2 The Future.

Through Kuumba we can build a bright #AfroFuture. art by Komi Olaf
