Throughout the south, African Americans celebrate their family heritage though family reunions.  After the Emancipation Proclamation was signed to free the slaves in 1863, many former slaves set out to find their kin. Noted author Alex Haley's television series "Roots" prompted many African Americans to become interested in African American genealogy.

"What are the functions of African American Reunions?"  Are we linking the past, presence and future? Are we putting enough emphasis on family history, educational discussions, family investments, family charitable causes, family business affairs, successsions, family estate planning and other important family matters that are vital to the family existence?

Please join host Antoinette Harrell for this upcoming discussion.
