Our Mission


  • Free Expression

    The authentic stories of black people within the United Methodist Church range from extraordinary to painful and all must be heard.

  • Authentic Conversation

    Healthy discussion of the experiences of black people within the United Methodist connection are necessary for greater understanding.

  • Cultural Change

    In both the community of black people and the larger community of the UMC a cultural shift is necessary to ensure we line into our calling.
