Kinara Park Kids Is For Our Community!
We're live and we're getting the word out to our community that we want to be part of the solution for our young people. We want beautiful images of African-American / Black kids worn by African-American / Black kids and seen by everyone.
Why? Because it is good for all of us.
Just this week/month there were multiple images of young African-American / Black kids in the news (victims of shootings and loss of life). These stories are too common and cause deep hurt to our hearts and psyche. No good has come from our kids being bombarded with hurtful and negative images. We want to transform perception.
It is simple, the Kinara Park Kids each represents one of the seven principles of Kwanzaa: Umoja (Unity), “KG” Kujichagulia (Self-Determination), Ujima (Collective Work & Responsibility), Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics), Nia (Purpose), Kuumba (Creativity) and Imani (Faith).
Here are my two sons, who are proud to be in Kinara Park Kids gear, but more importantly, they are surrounded by kids who are seeing positive images of beautiful African-American / Black kids and it is transforming our neighborhood. They know each of the Kids' names, they know the principles that each of them stands for, and I want other kids to have that same experience and that same positive impact in their lives.
