“A Tarnished and Tender History: Unitarian Universalists and the Struggle for Racial Justice”
Rev. Lydia Ferrante-Roseberry, preaching; Marc Killinger, Worship Associate
Throughout history, both Unitarians and Universalists have stood on the forefront of social justice issues. However, when it comes to racial justice, our history reveals the same dynamics of unconscious racism within our institutions as that we have sought to eradicate. As a predominantly white, middle-class domination, how does our historic “whiteness” impact our efforts to create a truly multicultural beloved community?

This Sunday’s Half-Plate: Black Lives Matter 5280 assists in building more loving and united Black communities while eliminating anti-Black violence and racism. Black Lives Matter 5280 uses a holistic racial justice approach to expose, address, and eradicate structures and systems of oppression while strengthening individual and community health and wellness. As part of the national movement, BLM 5280 embodies the declaration that Black Lives Matter. Nominated by Katy Wiley.
