Kujichagulia and Ujima



At the Kujichagulia observance at Brother and Sister Simms' home on the evening of Dec. 27, the young people in the Charles Riley Tutorial Program recited the 'Parable of the Eagle.' Brother Simms showed the audience his autographed copy of Dr. Karenga's book. Dr. Karenga spoke at the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2003 and Brother Simms recalled his conversation with Dr. Karenga. Brother Simms gave homage to Minister Evans and Minister Dailey from the Outreach Community Center. Ministers Lawrance and Akilah Evans spoke about the importance of Kujichagulia also.

On December 28, both ministers told folktales pertaining to Ujima. Ujima, according to Minister Lawrance Evans, involves doing the right thing.

Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr. is now an ancestor!

The Rochester (NY) community and the Elyria (OH) community are saddened by the passing of a distinguished scholar, researcher, community organizer, teacher, case manager, and clergyman, the renowned Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr, who transitioned on Sunday, September 9. from a brief illness.

This morning (September 14, 2018) will be his homegoing service at Aenon Baptist Church, 175 Genesee Street, Rochester NY 14611.

Please keep the Minister's immediate and extended family, and the First Community Interfaith Institute of Rochester and Elyria in your prayers.

I did not get the permission of the  Challenger Community News to reprint their article, thus, I cannot include it in the blog at this time.
