Ubuntu- What is the meaning of this word? There are many meanings but here are some that I have come across…

“I am what I am because of who we all are.”

“Humanity towards others.”

“The belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity.”


“Unity with your fellow brothers and sisters.”

It is evident that as a culture we need togetherness and unity with our fellow brothers and sisters. We have to come together and not continue dividing ourselves. We will have more as a whole when we work together. When we support black owned businesses, we put our money back into our communities and our dollar is circulated longer. We have buying power! A lot of us just choose to buy the wrong things and with the wrong people. We must change our generational way of thinking! Get out of the slave mentality that has been handed down throughout the years. Take your mind away from what the media is showing us, take a look around your communities, in your families and see that we need each other! Let’s keep the principle of Ubuntu strong by supporting each other and sowing the seeds for a more fruitful future for those generations to come. We are the chosen people!
