RE JENICE Armstrong's Kwanzaa column:
The piece was excellent - informative and balanced. I'm an old head who's very into our culture and wishes Kwanzaa was more accepted.
I liken the situation to being adopted. We know we come from somewhere else, but we have no connection. If you found out your ancestral name was Solenke, would you change it? Would that change the relationship you have with the name Armstrong and the family you love with that name?
Kwanzaa is a valiant attempt to help us Africans in the diaspora reconnect, but regrettably I have to agree with Jen's theme. It won't be embraced by the masses. Asante! (Thank you!)
