In Response To: Is Family Reunion A Thing of the Past? ()
Nevertheless, I do not think family reunions are a thing of the past. Personally, I think the number of family reunions have increased. They are becoming more elaborate - like going to a convention. And if we allow family reunions to decline in this country, that would say loud and clear, "We, African-Americans, have allowed some aspects of American culture to erode the essential values concerning family and kinship that our ancestors so greatly esteemed. We are showing loud and clear that we have NO CLUE as to WHO WE ARE as a people of African descent." In essence, we will be shouting that loudly from the rooftop, in my opinion.
