Happy Kwanzaa everyone! The week long celebration runs from December 26 to January 1 and each day symbolizes one of the principles of Kwanzaa. Today is Umoja which means unity. I chose a tune from the 1964 Larry Young album “Unity” mainly because it is called “Unity.” Also, “Softly As In A Morning Sunrise” has never swung so hard!
I will be celebrating this day of Umoja by shipping my daughter off to the sitter and working a long evening shift (boo). But here’s hoping everyone else gets to spend some time with the people they love.
