Why Black Marriage Day?
Black married couples make more money, our kids do better in school, and marriage rescues families from poverty, children are less likely to go to jail, or become teen parents and get divorced. In 1960, 61 percent of African Americans were married; today the rate hovers at a dismal 31 percent. When families do better communities do better. It’s time for change!
Our goal is to provide an Intra-racial sacred safe space for healing, self-mastery, nation-building and family development for Race First Forward thinking Black/Afrikan/African-American couples and those unmarried individuals seeking to support and contribute to the development, maintenance of Black marriages and the African American community
