About the Book

365 Days of Kwanzaa is a daily reader designed to provide for a perpetual celebration of two important African American cultural celebrations: African American History Month and Kwanzaa. African American History Month and Kwanzaa have both grown tremendously since their respective foundings in 1926 and 1966 respectively. 365 Days of Kwanzaa answers the increasing calls for a year round celebration while reserving the traditional celebrations.

365 Days of Kwanzaa is designed to celebrate African American accomplishment, the principles of Kwanzaa, the power of affirmation, the importance of language and vocabulary, and the knowledge that we can all be all that we make up our minds to be. Each day there is a positive affirmation, an assuring meditation, an inspirational word, the Kwanzaa principle of the day, and an African American achiever. Thus, this volume provides a tool for the celebration of Kwanzaa, African American History Month, and a positive mental attitude all year round.
