Stockton’s Black Family Day Promotes Healthy Lifestyle Choices

STOCKTON -- A little bit of world flavor smack dab in the middle of downtown Stockton.

This year’s Stockton Black Family Day Culture Fest took place at Weber Point on Labor Day.

While families got to munch on usual treats, organizers used the event to promote better health.

"We have University of the Pacific here, providing free health screenings,” Fayette Reynolds, the president of the board of Black Family Day said.

There were booths educating the public on a variety of topics and a large prop soda can that encouraged better dietary choices.

“Today’s theme is black health, black wealth. And we have always promoted health,” Reynolds said.
