After much anticipation and debate, the Liberty City shantytown has a name: the Umoja Village.
Umoja is the Swahili word for "unity" and one of the principles of Kwanzaa. It is also the name of the Shantytown built in Liberty City.
The naming ceremony was attended by about 50 people, followed by a catered dinner. After the celebration and cleanup, residents are getting ready for bed and another potential rainstorm.
Thank you to everyone who attended the naming ceremony and to all else who sent their well wishes.
Forward from the Umoja Village.
