The Three Kings
We love the Three Kings because they represent all the parts of us: Indigenous, European and African. The only thing missing is Asia, but they were three kings of the orient which is Asia. So no matter your heritage, the Three Kings represent all of us.
Furthermore, the wise men took a journey outside of themselves, outside their realms, to pay respect to another culture besides their own. That is the ultimate state of grace.
