*Every year Black Love Day is celebrated on February 13th since 1993; when it was created by the founder of the African American Holiday Association, Ayo Handy Kendi.
Black Love Day
Kendi describes Black Love Day as a “holiday (wholyday) of atonement, reconciliation, celebration and a 24-hour demonstration of Black love.” Black Love is to be demonstrated towards the Creator, oneself, our biological family of loved ones as well as the Black Community as we represent the entire Black Race.
