African American Elders, Cultural Traditions, and the Family Reunion
This article is a brief discussion of African American family reunions presented within an historic context. Its point of departure is the cultural toolbox that has been preserved through generations and is used for bridging intergenerational gaps and surviving the social challenges of modernity. It demonstrates how family reunions have served as rituals of cultural appreciation, resistance in the face of oppression, and transition into a future whose strength and power can be fueled by celebrations of the past.
