Kwanzaa Day 2: Kujichagulia

Kwanzaa candles Kujichagulia = Self Determination

Self-determination does not mean independence. It means that as I interact with others I define the kind of person I want to be, how I want to be treated, what I will respond to. When we practice self-determination in our individual lives we are neither fighting nor rebelling against the beliefs or actions of others. We are simply choosing, in an intentional way, our own beliefs and actions.
