Greetings Family,

As many of you already know, Mama NJERE Alghanee was taken from us (physically) in a terrible car/truck accident Thursday night. The family is currently making arrangements and these will be announced as quickly as possible. What we already know is that the family is badly in need of financial support from the Community. Neither insurance nor savings are in place to cover necessary expenses. Your help is needed now. NJERE lived a life of giving to us (her people) and it’s now time for us to give. We must help NJERE’s children and grandchildren pull through this tragedy.

Donations can be made at any Wachovia Bank. Donations should be made to Mama NJERE in care of  Sekelajah Alganee. The bank account # is 3000194920747. Again, donations can be made at any Wachovia Bank.

NOTE: Why NJERE’s name appears in All caps is simply a way of honoring OUR ancestors.

It’s an acknowledgment of their elevated status and OUR way to practice the Nguzo Saba or seven (7) principles of Kwanzaa EVERYDAY!

Imagine the impact, race-esteem we (our children) would feel by Black media, i.e., magazines, new papers, bloggers, etc. taking this simple action.
