Daily Toast- Kuumba 48171 "Who does your Kuumba serve"

Peace FAM:
Every now and again your are forced to face some difficult facts, and have to ask yourself some difficult questions. The answers that ring back can sometimes make you sick, but that feeling if faced and embraced can bring about healing. I was hit by one of those questions this morning when I was creating this video. I had to ask who does my/our creativity serve, and the answer that reverberated into my soul was not comforting.  Our creativity has been hijacked and has been put to work to help build and maintain nations for others, and in turn destroying us. We have to do some deep soul searching to figure out how to get control of our Kuumba so that we can put it to work for us. Part of the reason I developed the Challenge was to help people snatch control of the power that lies in them, and the power to create is something we need to definitely grasp. Our creativity is the source of our wealth, and we will never be able to get to where we need to be without it. At this point in our history it is being used full force against us. We see it being used to destroy our minds and to keep us stuck in position. Kuumba is the heart beat of culture, from her flows the innovation that move a culture and its people forward. In order to build as a collective or as an individual Kuumba must be controlled and harnessed to move forward. Let's take it back, and Let's Build!!!
