ABOUT FAMILY REUNIONS:

 

Several studies suggest that somewhere between 75 and 85 million Americans have participated in a family reunion within the last year, and 40 to 45 percent of all trips taken by African-Americans involve some sort of family visit.  It is estimated that upwards of 70 percent of all family reunions are held by African-Americans.
