Self Determination (Kujichagulia)- To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.
The second day of Kwanzaa Kujichagulia is our main event and we will be celebrating it with African dance, live music, traditional candle, Tambiko (pouring libations to the Ancestors), closing out with the Karamu (Feast)-
This principle of the Nguzo Saba is the foundation principle of the World Beat Cultural Center. Over 15 years ago it took self determination to take an empty water tower building that had no bathrooms, no water, and little electricity and make a culture center for indigenous people bloom in Balboa Park.
Kwanzaa is a family event celebrating an African American culture. All are welcome.
