Kwanzaa Day 6: Kuumba with Carrie Mae Weems on Inspiration for the Nation

Happy Kwanzaa from George Kilpatrick Inspiration for the Nation! The sixth principle is Kuumba (Creativity) and logically follows from and is required by the principle of Nia. Internationally acclaimed visual artist Carrie Mae Weems comes to Inspiration for the Nation to talk about doing as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

It is a commitment to being creative within the context of the national community vocation of restoring our people to their traditional greatness and thus leaving our community more beneficial and beautiful than we, i.e., each generation, inherited it. The principle has both a social and spiritual dimension and is deeply rooted in the social and sacred teachings of African societies.
