Description

Dear Maxwell Family,

It is with great joy that I anticipate the coming together of our family once again! A big THANK YOU goes out to our Cincinnati, Ohio host family for taking on the challenge of planning our 2017 reunion.

I am motivated to keep our family reunions strong by the memories of my mother, Frances Irene Brown Patton, and several other Maxwells who are no longer with us. If they were here today, each of them would be so happy to attend our family reunion. So, I charge each of you to come to Cincinnati, Ohio in July 2017 on behalf of our elders and family members that have gone on before us. Come and have a good time, get some hugs, and a sense of belonging from your family....The Maxwells.

I also stay motivated to keep our reunions strong because I know that the family is the anchor of African-American life. Let's not forget, one of the negative aspects of slavery was its ability to destroy the black family. Fortunately, those attempts were not always successful. Because of our ability to maintain some form of a family structure, we have been able to survive.

Coming together to celebrate our family shows our strength and defiance of unfair systems that were designed to tear us apart. Our reunions bring us together and keep us together. They serve as rituals to make our family bond tighter, as well as to build a stable foundation for future Maxwell generations.

Maxwell Strong.....It's All GOOD! See you all in Cincinnati!!

Love, Monica Patton-Humphries, President, Maxwell Family Reunion
