Multicultural Outreach at UUAA centers the voices, needs, and spiritual growth of Black and Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC).  


Historical Black Neighborhood Walks

For Black History Month, during February, 2021, the Multicultural Outreach Ministry, Racial Justice Arc and Outdoors Womyn groups all joined together to provide UUAA congregants with Historical Black Neighborhood Walks and Talks. Congregants could sign up for groups who took guided walks of the historical black neighborhoods in Ypsilanti and/or Ann Arbor. The walks were followed by Zoom discussions where participants shared what they learned, how they felt about engaging with local black history, how Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor black history and current demographics compare, and more.

The guided walks and Zoom conversations are over for this year, but there were requests to leave the information available to allow those who missed the walks to take them on their own (and in warmer weather!). Some participants want to repeat the walks and take more friends along to continue to learn together.
