Damu means Blood in Swahili. The Black Guerrilla Family adopted the Swahili teachings/language. Kumi415 (Kumi meaning 10 in Swahili) adopted Swahili teachings/language. Kwanzaa means Sacrifice in Swahili and we (ADOS) have adopted it as a holiday. Is there a connection between us and Swahili? Out of all the other African languages to choose from, why did we adopt Swahili?
