Umoja is a weekend experience for families that have black/bi-racial children being raised by parents or guardians of another ethnicity. The weekend is designed to be an opportunity for children and their families to examine, explore, reflect, understand and celebrate the rich and diverse traditions of black identities and culture in the United States. The program takes a family based approach with age appropriate sessions for the children and adults during the day and large group educational and celebratory evenings.
The mission of UMOJA is to empower transracial families to raise children that will:
- Have a positive black identity
- Be able to talk about race in an honest and open way
- Feel comfortable in all different cultures
- Handle basic skin and hair care
Become an UMOJA family. Empower your multi-ethnic family in ways you never imagined.
