Let's Get Together for KWANZAA

Posted By: Kamal Imani on October 28, 2016





African congas and bongos with a hip hop kick and a soulful grooving melody along with Kamal Imani's smooth but informative spoken word poetry about Kwanzaa makes this illuminating song Kamal's best Kwanzaa song yet! Play this one at the family functions.

Kamal Imani (Let’s get together for Kwanzaa)

Lyrics:
You got the power!
Happy kwanzaa, There’s nothing better
Then when our family comes together
Africans from the diaspora
To regroup, reflect, unite, architect
To put forgiveness back in effect
To move as a collective and not be strangers
Peace to the founder Maulana Karenga
For downloading the Nguzo Saba
From the Ancestors
It’s yours, so God bless ya
Happy Kwanzaa

• Umoja (Unity)- One God One Aim One Destiny
• Check Marcus Garvey

• Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): Do for self, nobody could save us

• Ujima ---(Collective Work and Responsibility):
• Stop making excuses, let’s do the damn thing

• Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics): Our dollars must circulate in the black universe like a comet
• Keep the money in rotation, in the black nation

• Nia (Purpose): What did God send you here for? Use your talents and your gifts
• To uplift
• Your people

• Kuumba (Creativity): Nobody can be you but you, so innovate the thing!

• Imani (Faith): Regardless to the obstacles, stay hopeful and finish the race!

Happy kwanzaa, There’s nothing better
Then when our family comes together
Africans from the diaspora
To regroup, reflect, unite, architect
To put forgiveness back in effect
To move as a collective and not be strangers
Peace to the founder Maulana Karenga
For downloading the Nguzo Saba
From the Ancestors
It’s yours, so God bless ya
Happy Kwanzaa
You got the power!

Black Americans descendants of plantation slaves are not African people. Black Americans are a NEW race of people born out of plantation slavery.
Black Americans did not come from Africa. Only Africans were on those slave ships leaving Africa.

Mr. Ron,

In respect to Mr. Imani that you are not hijacking this man’s blog and you send me to help you hijack his blog I will answer your question on my own blog I will post shortly titled after your question, “if the slaves were not Africans, where were they shipped from?”

My comment to Mr. Imani is an open and shut comment. Black Americans are not Africans. Black Americans are a NEW race of people. At the moment Black Americans has no celebration and when we do establish our first celebration it will be NEW and that celebration will be Resurrection Day.
Resurrection day is the day that God anointed me, Black America’s first genuine prophet who will lead Black Americans into our sovereign country becoming a nation for the first time. Our country will be from the northern borders of North Carolina into the Gulf of Mexico and from the middle of the Mississippi River into the Atlantic Ocean!

Brother Imani, what drew my comment to HARRY was when the lyrics said in The first stanza about when our family comes together Africans from the diaspora. It is come clear that his Brother is one, who is clueless of what the diaspora is and who participated in that period of time in history.

As you saw, this Brother top advantage of your blog without mentioning anything about The topic or lyrics but he made sure to leave his calling card, because of a lack of interest on his blogs.

I personally enjoyed this video happy Kwanzaa as the voice fades in the background.

May God continue to bless you and that is yours and all that you do to bring our people closer to the truth One step at a time.
