Summoning Our Sheroes

Voices and Stories of Black UU Clergywomen

Rev. Dr. Qiyamah Rahman

Date: October 17, 2020 

Location: Webinar hosted by UU Congregation of Atlanta 

"We are hungry for the lessons of the past and for guidance toward the promise of the future." These are the words of Rev. Toni Vincent, the fourth Black woman ordained and fellowshipped as a UU minister. This presentation shares some of the voices and stories of Black UU clergywomen. 

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.
