Race & Faith has partnered with UCCI to put on this event.
The Black Joy Retreat is our way of alleviating the racial trauma. While we recognize racial trauma, we also recognize the power to heal when we are together. So, we want to do just that, heal together. Creating this space for Black individuals and families to have fun and rest in an affirming, safe atmosphere is essential to that healing. This is a welcoming event for Black people that visibly affirms Blackness and the intersectionality of our identities. We will be Unapologetically Black in the space of retreat so our joy can freely flourish.
"We will love God, All Others, and the Earth by providing sanctuary, practicing hospitality, and performing ministry."
