Kwanzaa in KCMO is one of the best traditions in the 18th & Vine District and the kick-off has always been a fun event . . .

Fox4KC: Hundreds gather to celebrate first night of Kwanzaa in Kansas City

The lead photo is from a few years ago but it's one of my favorite pix and a glimpse at a local holiday tradition that doesn't just endure but thrives.

For more info on the festival, check The Black United Front FB.

Kwanzza has remained a political and educational holiday while Christmas is now just an excuse to buy cheap Chinese junk and nearly all of the religious significance has been extracted.

I was at the first one, the festival has grown and is actually one of the best attended events at the Gem Theater.

^^^^ Fair enough.

Went to it last year and have to admit it was much more entertaining and uplifting than anything at a boring Catholic midnight mass where most of the congregation is forced to attend.

It's always so cute when the Blacks pretend that they actually have a culture.

What is this Kwanza shit? Is it something they invented for the negroes? Is it as stupid as their Juneteenth bullshit celebration?

Founder of Kwaanza - sex crimes

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maulana_Karenga

Criminal convictions and imprisonment
In 1971, Karenga was sentenced to one to ten years in prison on counts of felonious assault and imprisonment.[14] One of the victims gave testimony of how Karenga and other men tortured her and another woman. The woman described having been stripped and beaten with an electrical cord. Karenga's estranged wife, Brenda Lorraine Karenga, testified that she sat on the other woman's stomach while another man forced water into her mouth through a hose.

A May 14, 1971, article in the Los Angeles Times described the testimony of one of the women:

Deborah Jones, who once was given the Swahili title of an African queen, said she and Gail Davis were whipped with an electrical cord and beaten with a karate baton after being ordered to remove their clothes. She testified that a hot soldering iron was placed in Miss Davis' mouth and placed against Miss Davis' face and that one of her own big toes was tightened in a vise. Karenga, head of US, also put detergent and running hoses in their mouths, she said. They also were hit on the heads with toasters.[15]
