Kiamsha is a swahili word. The root “amsha” is a synonym of: rouse, galvanize, move, rekindle, freshen, jog, call forth, excite, incite, rally, interest, evoke, bring around (revive), and inspirit. It’s prefix ki- means ”of a given kind.” The combination of the two means “that which awakens me.”
Believe it or not, before Kiamsha, there were people who actually referred to their mate as their "baby mama."
If it wasn't for Sankofa, Kiamsha might never have happened.
Although the Maafa has not totally dissipated, kiamsha has done a great deal to heal us of that bit of sickness.
