Homies host Kujichagulia Kwanzaa in Oakland

On December 27, the second night of Kwanzaa was hosted by the "Homies" in the lobby of the Empyrean Towers in downtown Oakland. After starting with a dinner, the program featured libations, a circle about the meaning of "self-determination" (the translation of Kujichagulia) and music.
