For its spring 2017 series, the Minns Lectures Committee is hosting a group of leading and insurgent Unitarian Universalist historians, ethicists, and activists who will present their research on the historical and future trajectories of Black Lives Matter and Unitarian Universalism. Who were the African American leaders in Unitarian, Universalist, and Unitarian Universalist congregations? Why don’t Unitarian Universalists today know about our black antecedents? What is the relationship between this “black hole” in white consciousness about African Americans and the contemporary Black Lives Matter movement?
Curated by the Rev. Mark Morrison-Reed, the series will consist of two lectures:
The Rev. Mary Margaret Earl, Executive Director and Senior Minister at the Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry (UUUM), will act as respondent.
