Turning Pages: December 2022 Book Suggestions


"In order to avoid lack or poverty of purpose in our gift-giving, we agreed that Kwanzaa gifts must always include two items a) a book and b) a heritage symbol - regardless of what else is given. This stipulation clearly points to our priorities of building and liberating our people. The book reflects and reinforces our commitment to education as an indispensable part of the struggle for liberation and reconstruction."

- Maulana Karenga, KWANZAA: A CELEBRATION OF FAMILY, COMMUNITY AND CULTURE
