400 YEARS BLACK IN AMERICA

This site was born from the convergence of our history...black history.

2019 is a symbolic year.

We remember and honor the 400-year anniversary of the first enslaved Africans transported to the United States in 1619, marking the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Kidnapped, chained, and dehumanized in the name of free labor, we pause in reverence. We share our resources. We offer encouragement. Our goal is to increase knowledge and educate as we unify around the impact our Black experience has made.

Welcome to 400 Years Black in America, a community powered by UMI (Urban Ministries, Inc.), Urban Outreach Foundation, Urban Faith and Uriel Press.
