What are your thoughts on Kwanzaa? Do you celebrate it? Can the Pan African Revolutionary Movement incorporate it, and other Afrocentric holidays?

I’m not down with the concept of an Afrocentric Holiday, not any more.

I organized Kwanzaa celebrations, and I still participate when I’m invited to, but I’m doing so for the community, not for Kwanzaa.

We need real celebration and recognition ceremonies, festivals, and rituals; were we have tangible achievements and honored ancestors we recognize, promote, and build on/with.  We need to actually do what we too often pretend to do with Kwanzaa.
