WHO WE ARE
It Starts With Wanting To Make A Contribution
Salem United is a non-profit organization established June 19, 2015. We foster maturity in economics, politics, culture, sports, arts and academics; through its diverse communities, encouraging everyone to work together as one.
The Board came together, to preserve Black Picnic Day formally known as Negro Election Day joining individuals, organizations and companies in bettering our communities.
When Salem United speaks of "Black” it is a term used to show unity amongst those that identify with their African roots. When we say "Black" it's not "anti-" any specific race. The African Diaspora consists of a worldwide collection of communities and nations, which are decedents from Africa, predominantly in Latin America. The largest African Diaspora populations are Brazil, United States, Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Colombia. The slave trade disrupted individual cultures and tribes that were in Africa and forced them to create many new unique, yet loosely connected, cultures in the new world. What sprang out of that tragedy was a new nation and culture of African descent, which demonstrated to the world the resiliency of humans. The sacrifice of African Americans allowed others of the African Diaspora to strive in America such as Afro-Latinos and West Indians.
Salem United’s goal for Black Picnic Day formally known as Negro Election Day is to continue a commitment maintaining the historical significance of the Black Picnic for all ages, with an emphasis on its family values
