Most Influential Black Spiritual Leaders 3

Rev. William G. Sinkford

The Rev. William G. Sinkford is the first African-American to head the Unitarian Universalist Association, a largely white, liberal denomination. This Boston-based minister has been a particularly vocal proponent of legalizing gay marriage—a position in keeping with his organization’s historical support of same-sex couples and their families—and he recently wrote a letter to President Bush vehemently opposing his decision to send 21,500 extra troops to Iraq.
