Celebrating Black History Month:
Selected Publications of the BlackQuaker Project
To learn more about Quakers of Color worldwide as we celebrate Black History Month, visit the Quakers of Color International Archive in the UMass Amherst Du Bois library for interviews with Quakers from Palestine, Kenya, Bolivia, and the USA (with some completed interviews awaiting UMass Amherst library posting).
To read about the lives of pioneering African American Quaker leaders, scholars, artists, and activists throughout USA history, read Black Fire: African American Quakers on Spirituality and Human Rights edited by Harold D. Weaver, Jr.; Paul Kriese; and Stephen W. Angell (Philadelphia: Quaker Press of Friends General Conference, 2011).
To learn about Dr. Weaver’s thoughts aimed at members of the Religious Society of Friends and others interested in racial justice, see our October 2020 Pendle Hill Pamphlet, Race, Systemic Violence, and Retrospective Justice: An African American Quaker Scholar-Activist Challenges Conventional Narratives.
For excerpts of the pamphlet recently published in Friends Journal this January about Dr. Weaver's views on Quakers and reparations, please see “A Proposed Plan for Retrospective Justice.”
