Black History Study Group  –  Facilitated by Allison Black

 The third Saturday of each month at 2 PM starting March 21 in the CAUM room.

The Black History Study Group is a monthly discussion group dedicated to examining black history (and current events involving race), which is much deeper and more complex than allowed for by the one month we usually give to black history.  This discussion group will be a venue for members of the congregation to become more informed about race, including the racist history of the United States, the history of different communities in the United States, to the roots and impact of current events.  The group will also encourage discussion of the experience and history of other minority communities in the United States.

RACISM CONTINUES TO BE RAMPANT IN THE US—

As UU’s we can make a difference!!
