In conjunction with an exhibit of the same name, Family Foundations charts the history of four Black Washtenaw County families: Asher Aray, Bass, Jewett, and Kersey. Including family-written histories, photographs, family trees, and interview transcripts, this book is an indelible record of Black community building in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti from the 19th century to today.
