Jimmie and Tabitha Watson (Married nine months):”It is important to promote marriage, to show marriage as a whole: the good, the bad and the ugly. People need events like this to show the importance of marriage in the Black community.”

Patrick and Veronica Seals (Married 22 years): It’s important to celebrate Black marriage because it brings to memory the lineage of our people in terms of matrimony. It gives positive guidance to our young people that they see the love, faithfulness and trust two people have for each other that helps create strong families in our community.” get-attachment.aspx6
