Today is the first day of Kwanzaa. Did you know that? Do you care? Do you celebrate Kwanzaa?
Kwanzaa is perhaps one of the most misunderstood/controversial celebrations of the holiday season. Some dismiss it as not being a “real religion” (ummm, it was never presented as a religion) and some think it is only for crazy militant types (no blood shed required in the seven principles).
So what is Kwanzaa? It must be something other than the basis for countless plays and presentations in inner-city schools, right?
