If I go by the first day of 2014, this will be a great year full of inspirational new things to experience as it was only a few hours into its beginning, when I received a spontaneous invitation. Brother Solwazi, the accomplished photographer who also shot the Going Natural Hair models last summer, invited me to join a private Kwanzaa ceremony. Although, I knew about Kwanzaa and even went to the National Museum of History celebration last month, I had never been to a Kwanzaa ceremony before.
