 Who is the Black Family Celebration for?     
 
 The Black Family Celebration has an open door policy​: It is our mission to rebuild the African American Families by identifying issues and providing solutions, but all are welcome.
 


 What does the BFC Committee hope to accomplish?
 
We hope to revive the BFC to it's original state.  It is the only event of it's kind in the area.  If we let it die, there are no alternatives for the community.
