Give the gift of education. The definition for purpose  is “ To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.”  Creativity means “to do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.”These go hand-in hand with collective work and responsibility, in which effort into building community spirit is important. On these days, think about what you can do to help educate others not only of African history, but take your kids or your partner to a museum for inspiration that can be utilized to make a difference in your community. For instance, theAfrican-American Museum of Iowahas a special exhibit on Kwanzaa.
