Family reunions are important rituals that have long contributed to the survival, health, and endurance of African American families, helping to maintain cultural heritage even in uncertain and turbulent times.
The drive to discover and reinforce family connections has continued to guide the African American community through the tradition of family reunions. Family reunions can connect the next generation to their past. Family history is recounted, traditions are taught, and bonds are strengthened through shared memories. Family reunions help children form identities about who they are.
Family reunions are an African American summer tradition, often held in significant places.
