Habari Gani? Kujichagulia!
Today is the second day of Kwanzaa, a week-long celebration that honors African heritage of the Black Diaspora. We will be highlighting the importance of the seven core principles of Kwanzaa, how you can practice in your families and communities, and share how Parenting for Liberation work embodies the tenets of each principle.
Today, on the second day of Kwanzaa we celebrate Kujichagulia (Self-Determination) which is to define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, & speak for ourselves.
Far too often Black parents are vilified and demonized for our parenting; however, Parenting for Liberation strives to interrupt dominant narratives about Black parents, create our own stories and narratives about the power and strength of our parenting. Utilizing storytelling across various medium including podcasting, hosting in-person story-circle gatherings, and publishing a book, Parenting for Liberation, is making every effort to ensure Black parents voices are heard.
Pre-Order our upcoming book to support Parenting for Liberation in amplifying Black parent voices, ensuring that we define, name, create, & speak for ourselves.
