UMOJA 2011— Is a Black Heritage Experience created for families who have adopted or are fostering African American children, bi-racial children or children from the African continent and the diasporas. Our camp provides an opportunity for children of all ages 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 by providing a fun, nurturing, celebratory, positive and safe environment for all its participants. Umoja is committed to helping children and their families experience a sense of pride about Blackness in American society. For the last four years between 30 and 40 families have joined us on this journey into their children’s birth heritage. We shared joys and struggles. Many of the children made their first friend that looked like them and came from a similar family. The experience made a difference in all the participants’ lives. So much so, that some of the families have attended all four years. From My own experience, I have made lifelong friends, learned a lot and I can look at my children and see their pride in who they are.
