Haiti Bought US Afro American Slaves, Set Them Free & Gave Them Land

Haiti has always been at the forefront of freedom. In fact, Haiti is onw of the bravest true leaders of the free world.

Haiti helped Simon Bolivar free a continent from colonialism on condition that he also ends slavery in any territory he liberates.

Now, new fact has come to light that Haiti also bought slaves from the US, freed them in Haiti and gave them land to start anew.

This country that loves freedom must be supported in its bid to shake off the economic chains it has been tied with!

US Afro American Soldier Traces His Ancestry To Igboland, Takes Igbo Name

We at Igbodefender.com know that most Afro American people have Igbo ancestry. But it is always added confirmation when DNA confirms to an Afro American that their roots are in Igboland.

Of course, the matter is sometimes confusing when they trace the ancestry to various places that had Igbo slave colonies established by the slave traders to de-Igbocize Igbos before transporting them to the new world – places in today’s Angola, and Congo among others.

Join us in welcoming Mazi Akachukwu Okeke back to the Igbo family – that is his chosen name.

Special thanks to the Igbo Village in Virginia for organising events that lead to DNA testing to help our Afro American brothers retrace their Igbo roots.

Igbo Americans and US Afro Americans should support such efforts more.

Kwanzaa will be an official holiday of this community

We have decided to make Kwanzaa the first one of the official holidays of this community.

Kwanzaa is a cultural festival observed mainly by US Afro Americans. But we want to promote it so that it is observed by Afro Americans of other American countries.

We also want to make it popular again, as it has lost a lot of popularity, even among US Afro Americans.

Kwanzaa is celebrated between December 26 and January 1.

It is a time for celebrating Black history. In order words a time to celebrate African and Afro American history.

Kwanzaa, a Swahili word, roughly means First Fruits.

According to Maulana Karenga who founded Kwanzaa, each of the seven days of Kwanzaa is dedicated to one of the following principles:

1. Umoja (Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.

2. Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define and name ourselves, as well as to create and speak for ourselves.
Ujima (Collective Work and

3. Responsibility): To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers’ and sisters’ problems our problems and to solve them together.

4. Ujamaa (Cooperative economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.

5. Nia (Purpose): To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.

6. Kuumba (Creativity): To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

7. Imani (Faith): To believe with all our hearts in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.

We look forward to celebrating the Kwanzaa, and call on the Community to make the next Kwanzaa rock!
