Spring 2017

Historical and Future Trajectories of Black Lives Matter and Unitarian Universalism

Lecture 2

Rev. Rosemary Bray McNatt

Date: April 1, 2017 

Location: First Parish in Cambridge 

Respondents: Rev. Mary Margaret Earl, Executive Director and Senior Minister at the Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry; DiDi Delgado, writer and activist 

For its spring 2017 series, the Minns Lectures Committee hosted a group of leading and insurgent Unitarian Universalist historians, ethicists, and activists who presented 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? 

The Rev. Rosemary Bray McNatt is President of Starr King School for the Ministry and a Professor of Unitarian Universalist Ministry and Heritage.
