Creating a theme for a family reunion is a great way to interest people and make them more likely to attend. It also makes things more fun when it comes to being imaginative with food, games, activities, invitations and just about every other aspect of the reunion.

Black family reunions: they’re not just a picnic, says Culture Freedom Radio host Mind Magick. “This past weekend I went to my first family renunion, on my father’s side. I got to see a lot of aunts and uncles I hadn’t seen in many years, and a lot of cousins I didn’t even know I had. And it’s a touching experience because, like, my aunt told me what my dad was like when he was young and how he used to get in trouble. And as soon as my aunt saw my, she started crying. She was so happy because it was like seeing her late brother again. You get to hear a lot of good things about your family that you never heard of.”
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?
