The celebration is a two-day cultural event that is recognized as the largest, most significant family event in the nation, attracting more than 500,000 people each year. In the late 1980's, the black family was under attack in the media. In response to significant negative projections of a "disappearing" and "disintegrating" black family, Dorothy I. Height, Chair of the National Council of Negro Women, developed an idea for a positive culturally based event that would celebrate African Americans' historic strengths and traditional values. The festival celebrates the enduring strengths and traditional values of the African American family. (
