Black Marriage Day 2011: Married And Proud Of It!
Black Marriage Day is right around the corner and we are so excited! Will you be celebrating? You certainly should be! Healthy relationships & marriages used to be and can be yet again the backbone of our community. Read below the information from the official Black Marriage Day website. Learn more about Black Marriage Day’s founder, Nisa Muhammad, here.

Join us March 27, as more than 300 communities and neighborhoods across the country organize events to celebrate marriage in the Black community. Black Marriage Day 2010 was another incredible success. From the cities that debuted You Saved Me, to the cities that promoted Tyler Perry’s movie “Why Did I Get Married Too”, to the cities that inducted couples into their Black Marriage Day Hall of Fame to the couples who just reminded each other how special they are in their lives, BMD was another beyond words event.
2011 events promise to be even better. There are many things you can do. We are debuting another new movie, Men Ain’t Boys, this year in 100 cities. It’s not too late to get in that number. Go to the Movie Debut page to see a clip from this year’s movie, find out how to get involved and see a clip from last year’s movie You Saved Me. Visit the Resources page for ideas and documents you can download to enhance your event. Listen to Super Bowl winning Coach Tony Dungy speak about Black Marriage Day.
Consider inducting couples into your Black Marriage Day Marriage Hall of Fame. Many cities held fabulous events last year that told the joy and pain of couples struggling against odds to have wedded bliss. We give you everything you need to have a memorable event. Find details on the Resources page.
Any entity, individual or family interested in celebrating the joy of marriage in the Black community can host a Black Marriage Day event. Organize couples in your family, social or work group to stand up on Black Marriage Day and celebrate marriage. The goal is to change the hearts and minds of the Black community to cherish and celebrate the marriages that we currently have while encouraging others to commit themselves to marriage so more children grow up with the gift of a two parent family. For more ideas go to the More to Do page.

Black Marriage Day falls on my birthday! My husband and I are having a Black Marriage/Family Film Festival with other couples in our home. The movies are family friendly, and the kids will be there, also. It's a needed thing in the area we live in (inner-city area with only about 40% married couples). My neighbors on both sides are black married couples. I may run out and knock on their doors and have them over, too!.
