———–  ABOUT THE THEME The KWANZAA theme for this year is “Supporting Our Own”, a statement calling for all Afrikans to critically engage with the question “Who are we supporting”, and find answers that are relevant, solution-oriented and liberating. United we stand, divided we fall. ABOUT KWANZAA KWANZAA is a Pan-Afrikan cultural celebration based on traditional harvest festivals observed throughout the continent for thousands of years. Some examples of these: Umkhosi, Incwala, Nc’wala and Dikgafela in Southern Afrika, Yam-festivals in West-Afrika, Kundun and Gyenprem in Ghana, Iri-Iji and Onwosato in Nigeria and Nguon in Cameroon. KWANZAA is a synthesis of these celebrations and presents a call for unity amongst Afrikan people. During KWANZAA, the Afrikan community come together to celebrate their achievements and victories, and make plans for the work ahead. It involves the whole family and brings together all Black people across language, nationality, religion and political affiliation. KWANZAA 2014 is coordinated by eBukhosini Solutions in cooperation with Art on Wax Concepts, Kahawa Club, E.P.C. and supportive community organizations. eBUKHOSINI SOLUTIONS is a community based company offering consultation and services related to community development, youth empowerment, leadership training, social transformation, cultural events and Afrikan Centred education.
