In this “Tell the Preacher what to preach” auction service, Silvine Farnell asked Rev. Lydia to share about her favorite historical Unitarian or Universalist. That’s definitely Francis Ellen Watkins Harper — (September 24, 1825-February 22, 1911), an African-American writer, lecturer, and political activist, who promoted abolition, civil rights, women’s rights, and temperance. She was a member of both the Philadelphia Unitarian congregation and an African American Episcopal church. She embodied the most noble of Unitarian values with courage and grit. Come hear about this extraordinary woman.
