Washington, DC — Black Marriage Day 2010 will be celebrate in cities across the country with the release of two marriage-themed films as part of this year’s observance Sunday, March 28, 2010.

 

Black Marriage Day’s eight annual celebration is a marriage education initiative promoting the benefits of marriage in the Black community. The event was created by Nisa Muhammad, Executive Director of Wedded Bliss Foundation, Inc., 236 Massachusetts Ave. NE, Suite 610, Washington, DC.

 

Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, will be the focus of marriage vow renewals reaffirming the power of marriage to celebrate the release of Tyler Perry’s latest film, “Why Did I Get Married Too?”

 

Local pastors will officiate vow renewals, radio stations plan to broadcast and give away Tyler Perry DVDs and promotional items. One lucky couple in each city will also receive a free trip to the Bahamas. For more information, go to: www.blackmarriageday.com

 

“You Saved Me” features candid looks inside the hardships and trials of relationships and what is required to sustain them. Filmmakers Lamar and Ronnie Tyler bring five real married couples to the screen who show how marriage has a direct impact on their lives. This film will debut in 25 cities around the country.

 

Black Marriage Day founder Nisa Muhammad will lead a post-screening panel discussion featuring the filmmakers and marriage educator Jewell Powell, author of the “Faith-based Marriage 101,” when the thought provoking movie debuts in Washington, DC, on Sunday, March 28, 2010, Black Marriage Day 2010.

Dozens of local sponsors in cities across the nation plan to also host Black Marriage Day 2010 celebrations. Since 2003, hundreds of local sponsors in cities large and small have hosted a Black Marriage Day event including: Tom Thumb weddings, marriage-themed contests for teens, workshops, conferences, Date Nights for singles considering marriage, community banquets, religious services and inductions into Marriage Halls of Fame for longtime married couples. Local, state and Congressional representatives have regularly issued proclamations celebrating marriage in the Black community.

 

“This year the passion for celebrating Black Marriage Day is bigger and better than ever,” Muhammad said. “Marriage matters to the Black community, and we want everyone to know.”
