Today is Black Marriage Day:

Black Marriage Day 2010, March 28, is right around the corner. Join us as more than 300 communities and neighborhoods across the country organize events to celebrate marriage in the Black community.
BMD 2009 was a great success!!! In more than 300 cities from coast to coast we celebrated marriage in the Black Community. There were inductions into the marriage halls of fame, dinners, conferences, vow renewals, and couples jumping the broom in marriage as well as Tom Thumb weddings for children. There was even a community march for marriage. Check out our BMD2008(web).ppt to see what you missed and to get some ideas for this year.

Any entity interested in celebrating the joy of marriage in the Black community can host a Black Marriage Day event. Organize couples in your family, social or work group to stand up on Black Marriage Day and celebrate marriage. The goal is to change the hearts and minds of the Black community to cherish and celebrate the marriages that we currently have while encouraging more to commit themselves to marriage so more children grow up with the gift of a two parent family.

We are fortunate have a couple in the White House that celebrates Black Marriage everyday:

Good Morning.

As you go through your weekend with family and friends, don’t forget JJP.

Drop those links. Engage in debate. Give us trivia and gossip too.

And always, have a peaceful day.
