awakenedlibra Collective Work and Responsibility/Ujima:

To work in a cooperative manner to strengthen our families, understanding that the well-being of our families is connected to the well being of our neighborhoods; that everyone must be concern with the overall health of their family and neighborhood; and that the well-being of our families and that of our neighborhoods are bound together

Perspective on Collective Work and Responsibility

The principle collective work and responsibility is best captured in by the African proverb says, “It takes a village to raise a child.” This principle teaches that family members must recognize that their own well-being is derived from their family’s and community’s well being; and that they must be concern with the overall health of their family and community. In addition the principle instructs that the lives of each family member and that of the community are bound together, and that the success of any one their lives is an aspect of and dependent on the goodness and health of the community as a whole. And finally, there can be no private accounting of the success or failure of their individual lives one by one. The community and the families which make up the community are responsible for the success and failure of the community in its totality.

omarraza #MyHighlightsof2014 Performing a 30 minute "Work In Progress" version of my one man play at the Black History Month; following by a Q&A alongside my rock of a director Evelyn Wallace.
This moment documented something so poignant for me: the fact that I was more than capable of performing solo and presenting my creative-entity on a public sphere.
I still have a lot more work to do with writing, creating and refining but I'm blessed to have been told such strong kind words.
Thank you to @lisaalali for taking this photo! Thank you also for my wee @rameet_kaur and her supportive family for coming.
I can't wait to showcase this in full next year: with lighting, directorial concepts, practitioner methods, music, laughter and most importantly, drama and tears

awakenedlibra Self-Determination/Kujichagulia:
To define the world in our own image and interest, placing African people and our history and culture at the center of our worldview and social reality

Perspective on Self-Determination

Implied and embedded in the principle self-determination is the notion of respect which a people have for its culture and historical and current contribution to the world. At the family level this translates into the art, music, and literature which is possessed or a part of the home. It obligates parents to follow Cater G. Woodson’s lead in teaching African American History first in the home, ensuring that children and adult know that they have made a special and enduring contribution to the world, that the African American experience in America is worthy of praise and honor, that as Bethune elegantly Stated: “I want Negroes to maintain their human dignity at all costs. We, as Negroes, must recognize that we are the custodians as well as the heirs of a great civilization. We have given something to the world as a race and for this we are proud and fully conscious of our place in the total picture of mankind’s development.” #habarigani #kujichagulia #Kwanzaa #BlackMen #BlackWomen #BlackChildren #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackHistory #History #BlackPower #BlackKnowledge #BlackExcellence #EducateYourself #ICantBreathe #BlackLivesMatter

studyallknight Just added to my TpT store:
Jackie Robinson, "An American Legend," Layered Flip Flap Book

Includes:
★Multiple Choice Questions and answer key
★Writing Prompts and answer key
★Shirt Design Activity

Great to use as a pre-reading exercise to introduce civil rights, Black History Month, American Literature, Social Studies, the 1940's, 1950's, 1960's. This activity can be accomplished in 2-3 class periods; follow-up activities would extend the activity.

Easy! Can be done as a class discussion or in small groups, depending on your preference. -recognize the cross-curricular excitement of the arts with social studies and literature. #StudyAllKnight #TipsAndFlips #TpT #teachersofinstagram #teacherspayteachers #CivilRights #BlackHistoryMonth #JackieRobinson
