The sixth day of Kwanzaa

Dogon symbol

*This date is the sixth day of Kwanzaa: The day focuses on Kuumba or creativity in Swahili.

This principle of the Nguzo Saba is a vow to being creative in the name of restoring black people to their traditional greatness by leaving our community more beautiful and beneficial. A large piece of expression can be found in the literature and culture of ancient Egypt.

The seven vibration of divine creation is the Dogon symbol representing creativity (picture). This focus is deeply rooted both in social and sacred teachings of African Societies.
