Thank you to the following people who made the January 2001 gathering possible:
We owe a particular thanks to Darrel Richey, who demonstrated utmost care and respect for the participants by preparing and serving meals each day in exceptionally beautiful surroundings, and to Hannah Wells, who ably and generously assisted.
We thank Julie Kain, who compiled the Timeline with the kind of attention to detail that is made possible only through genuine interest and scholarship in relation to one's subject of inquiry. Julie is a student at Starr King School who plans to enter the parish ministry.
There are several individuals who were leaders of Black Empowerment in the Unitarian Universalist Association who have begun a history project. We have benefited immeasurably from members of this group in their willingness to have extensive conversations with us.
Thank you to several leaders of Black Empowerment in the UUA who gave generously of their time in conversations with Alicia Forsey and others in order to clarify issues, though they could not be present for the January conference. Special appreciation goes to Mtangulizi Sanyika (formerly Hayward Henry) for being a guest lecturer in the UU History class.
We gratefully acknowledge the Fund for Unitarian Universalism for funding this publication, and finally, the generous donors to Starr King School for the Ministry.
