Umoja

On December 26, First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. transitioned from First Fruits to Dr. Karenga's 7 day Kwanzaa celebration. Fifteen year old Jazzmin Kamau, Minister Evans' protegee, opened the ceremony by discussing what Umoja means and had her four students from the sophomore class, ranging in age from 4 to 9, name the flags from some of the African countries. Brother Brian Griffin gave a presentation on Sojourner Truth, and Brother Clinton Moore read as well. Minister Evans continued his lesson on the etymology of the concepts of "crab in the barrel" and "hipster/hippie," which all came from Africa.
