After Sunday services, the whole family used to get together at "Big Mama's" house where we would enjoy good food and just being together as a family.

The grown-ups would discuss how to help whoever was in need in the family. Arrangements were made for those who were shut-in, struggling to make ends meet, or needing help to plant or harvest crops.  

How is it this tradtion is fading?  What can we do to bring it back?  Join Bernice Bennett and hosts, Antoinette Harrell and Robin Foster as we discuss this family tradition.
