Welcome to The BlackQuaker Project!
The BlackQuaker Project (1) celebrates the lives and contributions of Quakers of Color worldwide and (2) documents and addresses their concerns. It is an outreach and inreach ministry of Wellesley Friends Meeting, guided by the Quaker testimonies of Truth, Peace, Equality, Justice, and Community. The Project is led by Dr. Harold Weaver, who was the Founding Chair of the Department of Africana Studies at Rutgers University and is now an Alumnus Fellow at the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research at Harvard University.
