Summoning Our Sheroes

Unpacking the Complex Identities of Black UU Women: Research As a Spiritual Tool

Rev. Dr. Qiyamah Rahman

Date: October 10, 2020 

Location: Webinar hosted by First Unitarian Church of Chicago 

This research is based on the belief that we can bring Black UU women’s voices from the margin to the center of UUism and thus invite more diversity and communication. This research gathers and claims Black UU women’s stories and their reflections about UUism. 

Inspired by the Interfaith and social justice witness of our faith, Rev. Dr. Qiyamah Rahman is dedicating her research to reflect the diversely rich narratives of Unitarian Universalist Black Women. With a doctorate in Africana Women’s Studies, Rev. Dr. Rahman has conducted research on violence against women in Ghana, South Africa, and the US. Former Director of Contextual Ministry at Meadville Lombard, and past minister of the UU Fellowship of St. Croix, Virgin Islands, Rev. Dr Rahman challenges us to remember our “sheroes” and live into the fullness of our tradition — from 1801, when Amy Scott signed as one of the incorporators of the First Universalist Society in Philadelphia, to the present.
