UNITY DAY
MAY 2017

On Saturday, April 29, 2017 program participants (parents, elders, youth and volunteers) of the Building Resilience in African American Families from all three regions (Desert, Mid-Riverside, and Perris) will convene at the James O. Jessie Desert Highland Unity Center, located at 480 Tramview Road, Palm Springs, California for Unity Day!  Where the goal of supporting, empowering and inspiring resilience in African American Families will be emphasized.  This family centered, community engagement includes Afro-centric traditions and rituals, community outreach projects, traditional African American food, family centered activities, live entertainment, speakers, breakfast, lunch, and presentations. 

 

As a demonstration of respect, honor and responsibility the youth participants of all three regions have collectively commissioned a painting of Mr. James O. Jessie from Artist Salle of Desert Hot Springs to be dedicated in a ceremony at the event.  The boys desire that the portrait be adorned on a wall in the center and will symbolize “Unity”, the very thing Mr. Jessie fostered in his community.   In addition to the dedication ceremony, the local community will be presented a scroll of the Nguzo Saba Principles and encouraged to incorporate the principles into their lives.

 

Unity Day is a day of honor, inspiration, and encouragement.  Individuals, dignitaries, community leaders, officials and the local commuinty are invited to attend.

Remember, If you want to go quickly, go alone, if you want to go far, go together – African proverb.
