National Black Family Month

It’s Black Family Month! Established in 2006, Black Family Month celebrates families and their enrichment through education, health and self-improvement. Shaun McLaughlin founded this celebration after observing how families spent more time together in July attending family-related events.

We know it can be difficult to reconnect with the family sometimes, but studies show that spending time with family can improve communication, promote respect and mutual appreciation, and build confidence and self-esteem.

If you are looking for ideas on how to reconnect and reignite your connection with your immediate and extended family, here are a few activities that you can do together to celebrate Black Family Month:

  • Go on a family trip
  • Start a family group chat

Celebrate your family, and create memories that last a lifetime
