Today's Kwanzaa value is Self Determination. This means an ability to define yourself for yourself. We are all searching for self determination, I believe. No one wants to be viewed solely from their outsides, but instead want their inner qualities to be what they are remembered by. Instead of spreading stereotypes about people you feel are 'other', try to challenge them whenever you can. In that way, more people can be seen for themselves. My book recommendation for today is Invisible Man, which speaks to a man's struggle for self determination.
