Crossing the Line
February 4, 2018
Rev. Gordon Clay Bailey

Join us this first Sunday in Black History Month as we remember Rev Lewis McGee the first African American Senior Minister of a Unitarian Universalist congregation.  He is one of many POC to cross barriers and to help not only our association but our nation as we move towards racial justice. Maybe, just maybe there are lessons to be learned still from this historic event.

Frantz Fanon

In the process of shattering their chains:
Frantz Fanon and A Gesture Towards Hope
February 18, 2018
Dr. Amy Tahani-Bidmeshki
In this talk, I will unpack the legacy of one of resistance culture's most important thinkers, Frantz Fanon. In his seminal work, The Wretched of the Earth, Fanon leaves the reader with a hopeful overture that despite the legacy and continuation of racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and class hierarchies, the oppressed masses are "in the process of shattering their chains, and what is extraordinary is that they succeed." 
 

Dr. Yvonne Seon

1981 - Yvonne Seon is first African American woman to be fellowshipped as a UU Minister.


Oh My Sister

Rev Gordon Clay Bailey
Sometimes in this world a person is known for what they did.  At other times they may be remembered for the works left behind.  Then their are the individuals who gave birth to children of note.  Well in this case we will learn about the life, offspring and deeds of the first African American women to become a UU minister.  Join us for a journey towards wholeness.
