Black Family Reunion 
a Celebration of Family, Community, and History

August 8-15,1998
Black Family Reunion

The legacies that the parents, members of the church, and teachers, leave to black children is crucial to their development and survival in modern day America and this world. For too many children, supportive communities and supportive families represent an image that they cannot comprehend because they have never been part of their ethnic group. The Black Family Reunion Celebration (BFRC) was established by Dr. Dorothy I. Height, President of the National Council of Negro Women, as an effort to respond to the crisis facing our communities. This event honors Black heritage and culture, and sets the stage for the traditional transfer of knowledge and the revitalization of the Black community spirit. Through issue forums, information, and entertainment workshops, the BFRC aims to unify the community for constructive action in the face of national concerns regarding the Black Family in education, drug abuse, teen pregnancy, health care and employability.
