The History of Unitarians, Universalists and Race

Sundays January 14 through February 18.

11:15 AM in room 209-210

            Race has been a volatile issue since before the founding of our denomination.  This course will provide a historical perspective about how both our Unitarian and Universalist predecessors dealt with this vexing issue.  We will examine how the Unitarians and the Universalists dealt with racial justice and outreach to people of color in our history – both what they did right and what they did wrong.  By examining our past, we will know better how to face our future.

            You are welcome to attend as many sessions as you wish.  Each lesson will begin with a brief review of the previous weeks topics so missing a lesson will not necessarily put you behind the class.  Honest, open, and non-judgmental discussion will be encouraged.   For more information or to request a syllabus contact Jim Kelley at
