Our Story

It is in the African American tradition to have reunions, to get together, to preserve family culture, share information, and celebrate each and every member that makes up our family.

But, we don’t get together simply to party, eat potato salad, play Bid Whist and share laughs. It’s goes much deeper than that for us. Like many traditions, family reunions in African American culture has its roots entangled in our African ancestry. We share a painful history that manifests in family nurturing, bonding, and intentional preservation.
