We’re excited for the upcoming Black Family Reunion Celebration. Here’s a brief description of their work, and you can learn more at their website:

The Midwest Black Family Reunion Celebration is one of Cincinnati’s largest family-focused events. This 3-day fun-filled weekend event brings consumers, corporations, and communities together to focus on the historic strengths and values of the Black Family. Bring your families and friends and make this a reunion to remember! –Midwest Regional Black Family Reunion website.
