Broom Jumping Program Ideas:
"Right after our ceremony we will join in an old-fashioned broom jumping ritual. Please circle around us to participate. Broom jumping was handed down from generation to generation when our ancestors' vows were not legally recognized. We pay homage to our ancestors, whose shoulders we stand on and whose wisdom shines a guiding light on us. By jumping the broom we seal together our past, present, and future."

You may also want to include something about modern meanings, such as your personal reasons for using the ritual, family or fertility meanings.

Wishing you the best of luck designing and customizing your African American wedding invitations and programs to include broom jumping!

The ties established between two families by a happy marriage are stronger than those of wealth. --African Proverb
