The Midwest Regional Black Family Reunion Celebration was inaugurated in 1989 in Cincinnati,
Ohio. This event continues to grow and is now one of Cincinnati's largest family-focused
events drawing over 20,000 patrons. It is held annually the third weekend of August.
Conceived by Dr. Dorothy I. Height, President Emerita of the National Council of Negro
Women, the Black Family Reunion Celebration is a 3-day cultural week end event which brings
consumers, corporations, and communities together to focus on the historic strengths and
values of the Black Family. The National Council of Negro Women is dedicated to ensuring
that the historic morals of the Black family are showcased and reinforced through responsive
and innovative community ser- vice programs, such as the Black Family Reunion Celebration.
