To celebrate the second day of Kwanzaa’s principle Kujichagulia which means “Self-Determination” we thought what better way to show that principle in action than to highlight Self Determined African American women.

These women exhibit just how focus and determination can lift us to higher heights personally and bring about change in our communities collectively.

Share your thoughts about our list and tell us what you’re determined to do!
