Our Mission

Our mission at SHARE is to educate the community on the importance of our region's African American heritage and to act as a clearing house for information on activities and services in our region that center on racial equity.

SHARE is a source for research and documentation of the history of African Americans in southwest Michigan, and is also committed to fostering connections and conversations on race and providing awareness of racism and the broad societal benefits of its elimination.

Summit On Racism

We're already hard at work preparing this year's summit and it's never to early to make plans to attend.  Contact us today for information on dates, times and scheduled events. Don't miss this chance to engage, collaborate and generate action steps toward a more just and equitable society.
