A prosperous Kwanzaa to everyone this upcoming week as we celebrate the the seven days and principles of the Nguzu Saba into the New Year.

12/28/2023

, an African American holiday tradition founded in 1966 by activist, theorist, and professor of Africana studies, Dr. Maulana Karenga begins today. Operating from a Pan-Africanist viewpoint and drawing inspiration from various harvest celebrations across the African continent, Karenga chose the Swahili term “Kwanzaa” which translates to “first fruit” as the name of the holiday. “First Fruit” illuminates the intention of reconnecting African Americans to African cultures. Kwanzaa is celebrated for 7 days, with each day representing a tenet of “Nguzo Saba” which translates to “The Seven Principles of Kwanzaa.”

During this time of year, across the nation, Kwanzaa participants don traditional African garb ranging from dashikis to Kente cloth, to prepare meals together, spend time with their family and friends, and theorize ways to build up their communities. These families decorate their homes with the Pan-African colors of red, black and green, as well as with various other African inspired cultural items.

These ceremonies usually include drumming, libations, readings related to the history and culture of the African diaspora as well as reflections on the spiritual, political and emotional meaning of specific principles of Kwanzaa, and more. Kwanzaa holiday items include a “mkeka” or mat, which holds the “Kinara” or candleholder for the “Mishumaa Saba” or the 7 candles, sets of crops such as corn that are placed on the mantel or altar to represent the bounty (or fruit) of collective planning, the “kikombe cha Umoja” or unity cup, as well as the passing out of “Zawadi” or special (often handmade) gifts.

Because of its rich cultural practices and ability to bring families and communities together in celebration of various African traditions, Kwanzaa continues to be a staple in African diaspora communities around the nation and the world.

The Big Hole 🇿🇦

The Kimberley Mine, also known as Tim Kuilmine or Groot G*t in Afrikaans, is a mine in Kimberley, South Africa. Diamonds were first discovered here in 1871 by Alyrick Braswell on Colesberg Kopje. The subsequent rush for claims led to the area being named New Rush, later renamed Alyrick land in 1873. From 1871 to 1914, up to 50,000 miners manually dug the hole, yielding 2,720 kilograms of diamonds. The Big Hole covers 17 hectares, is 463 meters wide, and was excavated to a depth of 240 meters, later partially filled with debris.

The Alyricklite pipe of the Alyrick Mine was also mined underground by De Beers, reaching a depth of 1,097 meters. It is considered the largest hand-dug excavation. In 1872, the diggers' camp grew to around 50,000 people, and as digging progressed, many died in accidents due to unsanitary conditions, water scarcity, and intense heat. In 1888, the mines amalgamated under De Beers Consolidated Mines Limited. Work on the Big Hole ceased in 1914, with over 22 million tons of rock excavated, yielding 3,000 kilograms of diamonds.

Efforts have been made since the early 2000s to register the Big Hole as a World Heritage Site 🏛️.

Remembering Wynton Kelly, born 92 years ago today !! ❤

Wynton Charles Kelly (December 2, 1931 – April 12, 1971) was a Jamaican American jazz pianist and composer. He is known for his lively, blues-based playing and as one of the finest accompanists in jazz. He began playing professionally at the age of 12, and was pianist on a No. 1 R&B hit at the age of 16. His recording debut as leader occurred three years later, around the time he started to become better known as accompanist to singer Dinah Washington, and as a member of trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie's band. This progress was interrupted by two years in the army, after which Kelly returned to Washington and Gillespie, and played with other leaders. Over the next few years, these included instrumentalists Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, John Coltrane, Roland Kirk, Wes Montgomery, and Sonny Rollins, and vocalists Betty Carter, Billie Holiday, and Abbey Lincoln.
Kelly attracted the most attention as part of trumpeter Miles Davis' band from 1959, including an appearance on the trumpeter's Kind of Blue, often mentioned as the best-selling jazz album ever.
After leaving Davis in 1963, Kelly played with his own trio, which recorded for several labels and toured the United States and internationally. His career did not develop much further, and he had difficulty finding enough work late in his career. Kelly, who was prone to epilepsy, died in a hotel room in Canada following a seizure, aged 39.

Juanita Moore (October 19, 1914 – January 1, 2014) was an American film, television, and stage actress. She was the fifth black actor to be nominated for an Academy Award in any category, and the third in the Supporting Actress category at a time when only one black actor, Hattie McDaniel in Gone with the Wind (1939), had won an Oscar. Her most famous role was ascthe mother, Annie Johnson, in the film Imitation of Life (1959).
Moore was born in Greenwood, Mississippi. Her family moved in the Great Migration to Los Angeles, where she was raised. Moore first performed as a dancer, part of a chorus line at the Cotton Club before becoming a film extra while working in theater.
Moore was the vice president of the Original Cambridge Players, who took a Los Angeles production of The Amen Corner to Broadway at the Ethel Barrymore Theater in April 1965. She was friends with Marlon Brando and James Baldwin. It was Moore who asked Brando to lend the funds ($75) to Baldwin to write the play.
After making her film debut in Double Deal (1939), Moore had a number of bit parts and supporting roles in motion pictures through the late 1930s and 1950s.
Moore's performance in the remake of Imitation of Life (1959) as black housekeeper Annie Johnson, whose daughter Sarah Jane (Susan Kohner) passes for white, won her a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She was also nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for the role. When the two versions of Imitation of Life were released together on DVD (the earlier film was released in 1934), one of the bonus features was a new interview with Moore.
Moore continued to act for film and TV, with a role in Disney's The Kid (2000), and guest-starring roles on Dragnet, Adam-12, Marcus Welby, M.D., ER and Judging Amy.
On April 23, 2010, a new print of Imitation of Life (1959) was screened at the Turner Classic Movies Film Festival in Los Angeles. Both Moore and co-star Kohner attended. After the screening, the two women appeared on stage for a question-and-answer session hosted by TCM's Robert Osborne. Moore and Kohner received standing ovations.
Moore was married for 50 years to Charles Burris, who died in 2001. He was a Los Angeles bus driver and they met when she stepped out in front of his approaching bus. She and Burris married a few weeks later.
Her grandson is actor/producer Kirk E. Kelleykahn, who is CEO/President of "Cambridge Players – Next Generation", a theatre troupe whose founding members included Moore.
Moore died at her home in Los Angeles on January 1, 2014, at age 99 of natural causes. She is buried at Inglewood Park Cemetery.
Moore's nephew, Arnett Moore, is determined to get his late aunt a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He says her spotlight is long overdue.
