Today is National “Black Love Day!”
According to the African American Registry:
“It’s a day of atonement is an observance of atonement, reconciliation, celebration and 24 hour demonstration of Black love, showing 5 Tenets (specific acts). They are love towards the Creator, for Self, for the Family, within the Black Community and for the Black Race.”
It was founded to provide an non-commercial alternative to Valentine’s Day and to encourage “1) black self-love instead of self-hatred; 2) increased peace to stop violence; 3) racial healing!”
What a great idea!
Let’s celebrate the love of family with a classic from Sister Sledge!
