Topic For Friday, December 6th, 2013:
IS THE NGUZO SABA A VIABLE MODEL FOR 21st CENTURY GATEKEEPERS?


As the year draws to a close and we set about defining what Gatekeeping means for us as 21st Century Diasporan Africans, might the Kwanzaa principles serve as a template, or some part of a template for tapping our leadership potential where we meld indigenous and Western 'Best Practices'?

Kwanzaa was founded on the philosophy of the cultural nationalist theory and movement called Kawaida (a Swahili word meaning "tradition" or "reason," pronounced ka-wa-EE-da ) and involves three questions:

Who am I?
Am I really who I say I am?
Am I all that I ought to be?


- What can I do as a Gatekeeper?

- What special talents or skills do I have as a Gatekeeper?


- How, if at all, can the Kawaida help me to tap into my GK self?
