Culture is central to Afrikan life and has been so since time immemorial. Great nations have been established from what can be described as nothing less than the 'highest culture'. However, in recent times, Afrikan history has had major interruptions such as mass displacement, enslavement and colonisation which sought to destroy cultural facets. This has led many to question  whether Afrikan people around the world have a culture or indeed a culture to celebrate.

This account provides information on the background of Kwanzaa and highlights the depth and meaning of this vital Afrikan World Celebration.

The essence of this publication is to highlight Garveyism not simply as the powerful impacting core of ideals at the heart of  the most progressive, expansive and mighty worldwide body for the  expression of Afrikan nationhood, which it certainly was – but as a total way of life that many attest to being a ‘religion’ itself. Further, it seeks to highlight that the Afrikan spirit of the supreme visionary Marcus Garvey was a natural divine inheritance from the most  ancient of times and this would later find expression in the all      pervasive articulation of the attainment and maintenance of Afrikan liberty steeped in Afrikan spirit – that is beautifully enshrined in his philosophy of Afrikan Fundamentalism.

Surely the overwhelming majority of Afrikan people throughout the world today carry the spirit of liberty inherited from their Great Ancestors. There is no shortage of examples from the vast array of mighty ones that were not prepared to subject themselves to an 'existence' filled with the brutal imposition of death, destruction and oppression at the enslaving hands of foreign forces. The forthright spirit of Ajar had a number of great descendents. However, one of the descendants was destined to manifest that spirit of liberty in a magnanimous way....
