As we continue through the month of March, with over 300 organizations around the nation (USA) observing/celebrating Black Marriage Day, some words from Dr. Llaila Afrika (in African Holistic Health, pg. 351) resonate within us:
“The female/male relationship is microcosmic of the culture . . . (it) transmits and translates culture . . . (it) is the smallest functional unit of the culture . . . The Black wholistic female/male relationship is for the upliftment of the culture,” with a major function of this relationship being the rearing of children who have what it takes to “advance the culture.”
Dr. Afrika goes on to assert that the positive result of such a dynamic is that “the culture (i.e., village) serves the relationship and the relationship serves the culture. It takes a village to have a marriage . . . it takes African-centeredness to have a holistic African cultural marriage.”
Join us, as we consider these and other point of view. Including YOURS!
Let Black Marriage Day, the sacred African way, be the exhilarating, unending norm once again, forevermore!
