HOUSTON, TEXAS – OCTOBER 5, 2015 – Today, Sunshine Productions, a 2015 diversity event company, announced hosting the First Annual Black Family Summit, Friday and Saturday, November 6 and 7, 2015 at the Shrine Cultural and Events Center, beginning at 6:00 pm each evening. Friday night features the TOWN HALL MEETING on the “State of the Black Family and What Are We Going To Do About It”. SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE features “The Crisis in Black Male-Black Female Relationships” with a guest lecturer and audience interaction. The Town Hall panelists cover a broad cross-section of the greater Houston-Galveston area and include out-of-state participants. All events take place at 5309 Martin Luther King Blvd., Houston, TX 77021.

The Black Family Summit promises to be the catalyst in shifting Black family consciousness not only locally but regionally with communities talking increasingly with each other. Black Family Summit is used instead of African American in order to be inclusive of all people of African descent from the US, Caribbean, South America, Africa or wherever they hail from.

Sunshine Productions will also introduce an Emotional Emancipation Circle (EEC) at 5:30 pm which deals with the poisonous ideas at the heart of persistent devaluing of Black lives and the systematic under-development of Black communities worldwide. The EEC was developed as a collaboration between the Community Healing Network, Inc. (CHN) and the National Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi). The CHN and ABPsi presented a Global Emancipation Summit recently at the Congressional Black Caucus 45th Annual Legislative Conference, September 2015. The two-day Global Emancipation Summit was hosted by the Hon. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), Ranking Member of the House of Representatives Africa Subcommittee.

The Black Family Summit is dedicated to the late James Phillip Johnson, Executive Director of the Organization for Black Unity (OBU) in San Antonio, Texas who is affectionately known as Baba Phil. Baba Phil led OBU in African-centered education and service to the community for nearly 40 years until May of this year.
