“Through this book, Akua provides ways for us to value the lives of our children, and ways to teach them who they are as children with a rich African heritage.  This book…challenges us to train our children in ways that will affirm our past and secure our future.”

“There are those who say that children are our future, but Chike Akua acts on this belief with a wonderfully organized book.  A Kwanzaa Awakening is a template, a guide that every educator, parent, and every church leader should have.  Brother Akua has helped us along the journey to discovering our rich legacy and passing it on to our children.”
