The Songhai Bamboo Roots will be celebrating this holiday season with a week of activities that embody the principles of Kwanzaa in Killeen, TX . From December 26 – December 30, at the Moss Rose Community Center located downtown at 1103 E. Ave. E. in Killeen, cultural workshops will begin from 6:00PM until 10:00PM.
Umoja, or unity is the first principle of Kwanzaa, and a great time to stop getting stuff and get information needed about the Affordable Healthcare Insurance, aka, Obama Care on the 26th of December. Plan to attend this important workshop from the TX State NAACP to get the facts. The following evening, CW4 Ron Jupiter will be teaching the principles of Ujima or Collective Work and Responsibility as his topic focuses on Preparedness. On day 3, bring plenty of materials for taking notes, as Dr. Morton & Corey Allen covers financial literacy. On the 4th evening of Kwanzaa, Mr. Rodney Duckett will break down the importance of mind, body, spirit, and Soul Health Awareness. Learn how thoughts, actions, and more affect health. Find out what you need to know. On the 30th of December, Songhai Bamboo Roots will present the Kwanzaa Celebration with youth presenters, drums, dance, speakers and food.
