The Black Family: United by History, Restored by Storytelling

June 26 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

FREE COMMUNITY EVENT — OPEN TO PUBLIC ON ASALH TV

The Black Family: United by History, Restored by Storytelling includes workshops, Q&A sessions, panel discussions, and a certificate program

Join us for our project launch on June 26th with insightful presentations by Tracey Artis from Black Family Reunion and Therese Nelson of Black Culinary History. Through this launch event, we hope to inspire families to reconnect and reemerge whole through archiving, storytelling, and breaking bread guided by both our live and pre-recorded sessions.

In continuing this year’s theme, “The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity,” the Association for the Study of African American Life and History is excited to announce a new national campaign, “The Black Family: United by History, Restored by Storytelling.” Launching in collaboration with NY Life and Archival Alchemy®, the campaign encourages participants to host intergenerational Black family reunions—virtual or in person—to explore their unique African American heritage and family History.

“The Black Family: United by History, Restored by Storytelling” will include prerecorded workshops, Q&A sessions, panel discussions, and a certificate program to guide participants through tools of oral storytelling, genealogy, and familial archiving that may serve as a roadmap to their reunions, after a year apart.
