Unity of Oak Park invites you to come and celebrate the first day of Kwanzaa—Umoja: To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race. We will welcome you with the drums and invite you to honor our elders, celebrate our oneness, and embrace unity. During Kwanzaa (December 26 through January 1) we are invited to emphasize, learn about and share principles to live by: Umoja—Unity, Kujichagulia—Self-determination, Ujima—Collective works and responsibility, Ujamaa—Cooperative economics, Nia—Purpose, Kuumba—Creativity, and Imani—Faith. This year Unity of Oak Park is celebrating Kwanzaa with drums, music, storytelling and a Karamu (feast) of ethnic delights. So, come wearing your ethnic best (optional - regular wear ok) with a smile on your face and joy in your hearts. Be prepared to join in with Kucha and Baba Tony and participate, to sing and to meditate, to light the Umoja candle, and get to know your brothers and sisters. Please sign up in the Book Room.
