The family is of the utmost importance to the Black Southern Belle. From Sunday dinner to church gatherings, we are always thinking of our family first. As summer comes to a close, we want to highlight one of the biggest and most cherished family traditions, the African American Family Reunion. From the food to the fellowship, the African American Family Reunion is something we all look forward to every time it is planned. We scoured the internet to find a few of our favorite images that represent this beautiful event and are sharing our favorites with you today. If you have a few of your own, be sure to share them with us on social media by using the hashtag #blacksouthernbelle
Cookouts happen all the time in the South but the cookout for a family reunion is something special. We love how this image showcases that time together! Not to mention the vibrant colors this artist uses!
Everyone remembers having to get together for a big group photo and how much work that can be to wrangle everyone into a pose. But it is worth it to have a memento place on your gallery wall or fireplace mantle.
We all love heading home to grandma’s house and celebrating the family reunion to make even more memories. It is especially fun when you set the table for outdoor dining in the front or back yard.
This painting is a gem and showcases all of the fun that can be had at a family reunion. From children getting to meet each other to the women cooking and the men grilling, this painting says it all.
Every family reunion ends on a Sunday with an outing to church or a Gala on Saturday night. Every Black Southern Belle loves gettingA�dressed up but it is, even more, fun with family!
A waterfront family reunion is so much fun and as a lowcountry native, there is nothing better than a dip in the ocean or lake with your cousins on a hot summers day to burn off all the delicious food!
