Black Ypsilanti

Black Ypsilanti gives voice to the dynamic, yet under-reported history of Black people in Ypsilanti, Michigan. From the pre-Civil War period through the 1970s, Ypsilanti was home to one of the most vibrant Black communities in Michigan--a community of trailblazers in early childhood education, civic life, and abolitionist activity.
