Back on Sunday

Everyone, I'm taking a few days for a little R&R. Hell if the Obama's can take several weeks vacation, I can surely take off a few days. lol

A growing confederation of BWE bloggers is launching a campaign to address the out-of-wedlock epidemic in the black community. On September 22, the day Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, we will drop a 'blog blitzkrieg' regarding the importance of personal responsibility in parenthood, dubbed "No Wedding, No Womb!" (this is the attention-getter, but we are more so advocating for personal responsibility, the importance of the ACTIVE presence of mothers and fathers in raising children, access and use of birth control, etc)

I would love for you to join us! Here are some of the participants I know you might be acquainted with:
Diary of a Black & White Family, (Karyn Folan, author Don’t Bring Home a White Boy)

• Black Women Deserve Better (Cherilyn Smith)
• Betty Chambers, Betty Chambers Has Spoken

This event will be covered in major national print, online, radio and broadcast outlets.

Sorry to hijack your thread! After reading your blog, I thought you might be interested in knowing that I am organizing a blog blitzkrieg on September 22 dubbed, "No Wedding, No Womb!" in which a legion of writers, authors and bloggers will call attention to the rampant out-of-wedlock problem in our community. We already have interest from the media--this is a serious call to action. I'd love to give you more information if you're interested. Find me on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/christelyn or email info AT beyondblackwhite DOT COM

I'll let you know Christelyn. It's a very worth wild cause, and more attention definitely needs to be paid to it.
