Spring 2017

Historical and Future Trajectories of Black Lives Matter and Unitarian Universalism

The Black Hole in the White UU Psyche

Rev. Mark Morrison-Reed

Date: March 31, 2017 

Location: First Church Boston 

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. Mark Morrison-Reed ia an Affiliated Member of Meadville-Lombard Theological School.
