Kuumba means Creativity Creativity is in our blood, we create as naturally as we breath. From music to clothing, businesses, inventions, hair styles, instruments and more; creativity is a part of our culture. During this sixth day of Kwanzaa I challenge each of us to tap into our creative spaces. Practicing our creativity clears the mind and the heart in a way that no other activity can do. It allows us to share a piece of ourselves to our audience. For me writing songs on my acoustic guitar gives me the opportunity to share a piece of my soul in the words of my songwriting. There are several forms of creativity that we can tap into: music, dance, art, but the celebration Kuumba is popularly defined as, “To do always as much as we can in the way that we can in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than when we inherited it.” The way that we inherit our world is out of our control but the way that we leave it for the next generation is completely dependent on us. For as long we’re on this earth the way that the world looks is more of our responsibility each day that we inhabit it. We can use our creativity to make the world a better place in several ways, the more obvious of which being physical or aesthetic appeal but there are other areas from spiritually and ethically, that our creativity positivity impacts the world we live in. written by Amani Sawari of SawariMedia #kwanzaa
