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.”
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.

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?

Last Refuge Radio Host Adam F. Hutton, H4TV Political Analyst Darren C. Lee, and Gerry Martini discuss the biggest stories in news and politics every week. On February 14, 2014 we'll talk about the debt ceiling votes in the House and Senate; a promising development in inter-Korean relations as the North agreed to allow families separated by the 1950-53 war to reunite on its side of the border; and increasing marriage equality in America as Attorney General Eric Holder announced this week that the Department of Justice would start extending the same rights to homosexual couples that it has long afforded heterosexuals.
Okay people, this is the one you've been waiting for. I decided to do a show on Black Family Reunions and Holidays because I think family is the most important aspect of life we have under God. Not that I have to quantify this but I chose black families simply because that’s where my perspective is from and nothing else. Everyone has had that crazy drunk Uncle that acts a fool at the reunion, or that fast Auntee who’s kinda fine and flirty but you can’t mess with her cause she’s family. That's right I said Auntee not Aunt. And nobody will do you like family will and that's speaking from a good and bad standpoint. Y'all know what I'm talking bout. One Christmas my sister gave out Christmas gifts to the family which was the stuff she had borrowed from us throughout the year and never returned. Another year I had an Aunt make everyone get it two lines in which she wrote us checks for $10 each in the first line, then she cashed the same checks in the second line. Everybody's got stories like that from holidays and family reunions so call in or email your reunions or holiday stories to the show. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and the number to call in is (347)826-9214 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting (347)826-9214 end_of_the_skype_highlighting.. Share your favorite stories on the show and tune in to blogtalkradiolcom/ask_radidio on March 28th for a fun and entertaining show where we will laugh at, and enjoy our families in love. I better get a lot of calls from the Thorpe, Booker, Lindsey, Stevens and Atkins family’s.
Are you planning a family reunion and have no idea where to start? Are you integrating family history and genealogy in your family reunion activities?
Callian Jenkins is a Senior Technical Project Manager at ICF International. In 2011, she planned and managed a large family reunion in Silver Spring, MD. Currently, with her family, she's in the process of writing a Family Reunion Planning Guide to help her other family members plan family reunions
Family reunions should be more than partying and eating. Family members travel from great distances to be together, and this is the perfect time to handle your family business, start family scholarship funds, discuss estate planning.
Create a quality reunion booklet that will help your family learn about thier ancestors and embrace the principles that they lived by in life. Include a business directory of family members so your can support one another in business. See Spruce up your family reunion souvenir booklet.

Last week marked the 15th Reunion the Gaines Family has hosted since 1986. The brainchild of my cousins, Theresa Johnson and Lula McKeever, the family roots are deeply intertwined in slavery, suffering and salvation. William and Louisa Gaines were the original slave couple, allowed to stay together as they raised their 14 children in Georgia starting in the late 1700s.
Today’s show will discuss the many ways that your family reunion can serve as the principal method to archive your family history. We’ll also use the Gaines model of knowledge transfer, where one family member passes the family leadership from one generation to the next.
Big or small... family reunions, gatherings and celebrations are excellent ways to provide a long lasting thread of family stability to your immediate and expanded family unit.
