For the Love of Black Men
For the Love of Black Men

"For the Love of Black Men is a thought-provoking, hard-hitting book of prose that offers renderings of past and present indignities, self-introspection, spiritual commitment, forgiveness and the necessity of solutions. It probes areas that are not openly discussed. More than just a book of poetry Ayin Adams’ volume addresses issues credibly, compassionately, and directly, with a minimum of soft edges. Adams transports the reader on a personal and private tour into a realm where some Black Men have had to wrestle and confront their own challenging questions concerning their wholeness."

Kwanzaa in Hawai`i
Kwanzaa in Hawai`i

Kwanzaa is a celebratory period of seven days from December 26 - January 1 that acknowledges spirit, the ancestors, and seven principles for living more harmoniously in a ritual that is popular with many African Americans. It celebrates certain values to be embraced by the community, the family, and the individual to help create better, more productive, and fulfi lled lives. Although the African American community is small in the Hawaiian Islands, resident groups of African Americans and their friends and families gather together in a tradition to celebrate the 7 principles of Kwanzaa at the end of each year. The principles are: umoja, ujima, ujamaa, kujuchagulia, nia, kuumba, and imani. Dr. Ayin M. Adams has put together this delightfully creative and informative book to share the philosophical values, cultural poetry, recipes, and photographs of the unique beauty of the Hawaiian Islands and enhance the meaning, scope, depth, and intimate ritual of Kwanzaa.
