PRESS RELEASE:
 

Black Love Day- 25 Years of Creating Solutions for Better Relationships Within Black and White Communities


Black Love Day, Feb. 13 th , this year, 2018, is celebrating 25 years of creating solutions for better relationships within Black and White communities with this year’s 2018 theme: “Clearing Cellular Memory to find Love and Peace”. This year, the holiday comes after a fire storm of backlash at Donald Trump’s negative rants regarding Haitians and other people of African descent, while showing preferential bias towards people of Norway, which prompted Congressman John Lewis to raise the question, “Does Trumps’ racism come in his DNA?”

Founder of Black Love Day, steward of the holiday and the non-profit, African American
Holiday Association (AAHA) and a professional Breathologist, heard these comments and said, “No, the behavior of racism is not passed on genetically, but through “cellular memory”. After years of working with “cellular memory, she began applying this concept to healing racism and intra-racial healing. She commented, “Over the last 50 years, especially within, the last 15 years, scientists, medical practitioners and, experts have verified that the source of symptoms as stress,pain, anxiety, trauma, fear, self-hatred, or distrust of others, as well as joy and love, isn’t located only in our brain or in our environment. The source is located in the unseen issues of our unconscious and subconscious mind, or what science calls “cellular memory.”

So what is “cellular memory”? We are talking about our memories, good, bad, or indifferent,
which are housed as energy, in every cell in our body, and not just in the brain’s cells. Cellular memory, is the source of most of our life issues and problems. When you heal the cellular memory, the healing permeates the root cause of feelings and behavior, thus we can “deprogram” and then “reprogram” new, more healthier cellular memories for changed, behaviorial responses.

Handy-Kendi has created a transformative system, using Breathology and sound, that helps clear “cellular memory” and has used it for healing racism and other relationship concerns. She encourages anyone, who has been seeking solutions to change the dynamics of Black intra-racial healing and White supremacy/racism divisions, to put away the “dialogues” and go directly, to the true source of relationship healing – our cellular memory.

Take part in a tremendous shift of energy, with this years’ 25 th Anniversary of Black Love Day, with our theme, 2018 Theme: Clearing Cellular Memory to find Love and Peace, as we raise consciousness of this solution.

Demonstrate the 5 Tenants of Black Love wherever you are – because it is not where you go on Black Love Day, it is what you “do to act in love for 24 hours”.

WHAT IS BLACK LOVE DAY (BLD) 

Black Love Day (BLD) is the 3rd nationally commemorated African-American Holiday (wholyday) observance of atonement, reconciliation, celebration and 24 hour demonstration of Black Love through 5 tenets (loving acts) - for The Creator, for Self, for the Black Family, the Black Community, and the Black Race.  BLD also encourages Whites in the 24 hour period to "show love in action" towards Blacks by working on their own racial attitudes and behaviors..  The goals of this day are to increase peace, stop violence, end Black self-hatred and White supremacy/racism, to offer a spiritual, African-centered,
alternative to the commercialized, and sometimes violent, ValentineDay.

Since 1993 the first BLD, Ayo Handy-Kendi, has shared the BLD tenets and their higher love vibrations with millions on radio, t.v,  in print, on college campuses, with community organizations, and through her “Black Love Book”,  which can be ordered through www.AfricanAmericanHolidays.org

Furthermore, Handy-Kendi is the founder of the Ritual of Reconciliation, foundation ritual of Black Love Day and a ritual of reconnection anytime;  Optimum Life Breathology (OLB), and PositivEnergyWorks, LLC with over 40 years of experience in transformative breath practices and wholistic healing of cellular memory which enabled her to evolve from her own pain and trauma as a mother of a slain teenager, and addicted behavior and repressed memories of being sexually and verbally abused as a child.

What would happen if around the Nation and the World, for 24 hours on Black Love Day, February 13, everyone in the Black community performed at least, 5 specific acts of love – towards the Creator, for Self, for Family, for the Community and for the Black Race, and at the same time, everyone in the White community put “love in action towards Blacks? 
 
This is what happens on Black Love Day Feb. 13, the 3rd nationally, observed African-American holiday (wholyday) of atonement, reconciliation, celebration and 24 hour demonstration of Black Love now celebrating its 24th year.  To increase peace, stop violence, end Black self-hatred and White supremacy/racism, Black Love Day encourages us to return to love to transform and heal all of our relationships.

SOME TRADITIONAL THINGS TO DO ON BLACK LOVE DAY:


·** It's NOT WHERE YOU GO for Black Love Day (BLD) - it is WHAT YOU DO to demonstrate (show) love on this day.  Demonstrate the 5 Tenets (acts of love) on BLD to transform on this wholyday, then practice these tenets everyday to maintain the higher vibration of love   Events and activities are held in honor of, to celebrate or to commemorate Black Love Day, so make the distinction. For example:  Black Love Day is not the Black Luv Festival or the Relationship Ceremony, both held in D.C..  Instead Black Love Day, Feb. 13th is commemorated for 24 hours, both locally, nationally and internationally.


*** The greeting is Nya Akoma (N yah Ah comah) means get a heart, be patient
