The Black Family Reunion is a cultural celebration where thousands of Allegheny County residents, vendors, artists, and activists come together to celebrate the Black family and the Black community. What started out as an intimate block party in 2003 has grown into an iconic, multi-day event with thousands of attendees and over 40 vendors. A main performance stage features entertainment by local and national artists. Participants enjoy recreational activities, free health screenings, information booths, and arts and crafts for kids. The Reunion also includes summits and networking opportunities with local leaders to address issues specific to the Black community. This highly anticipated local healing space truly epitomizes the word “family”.
Every event I attend I meet wonderful people and more importantly I learn more about our history.
