Music, laughter, coordinating t-shirts, tons of barbecue…and a whole lot of love.
Welcome to the black family reunion!
Tailored to join the branches of the family tree together for unforgettable, jam-packed, annual weekend celebrations, while family reunions are fun, they often miss a vital ingredient in keeping the family stitched together: a record of the family history.
Lessons in Legacy is a practical guide teaching families how to document their rich history to pass down for generations. Following the blueprint set forth by the Johnson, McQueen and McFarland clan of Chesterfield County South Carolina, Lessons in Legacy paints an intimate portrait of the family’s legacy of love while providing readers with proven methods to research their own family history, as well as checklists for planning and hosting stellar legacy building events.
Families deserve to have the stories of how their blood and bond came to be shared for generations; Lessons in Legacy is the perfect tool to teach families how to preserve their treasured stories with dignity and grace.
