I heard of someone today who celebrates Kwanzaa - I looked it up on wikipedia and quickly learned that...

1) it was created in 1966 by Maulana Karenga to be an alternative to Christianity
2) Karenga was an American born Africana Studies Professor, Black Power Movement activist, and imprisoned felon
3) Karenga and his wife were convicted and imprisoned for torturing 2 women (details in pictures)

The more you know 😂
