Black Humanism in Unitarian Universalist Context and Beyond
Thursday 6/21/2018, 1:30:00 PM - 2:30:00 PM
Kansas City Convention Center -- 2502 B
Sponsored by UU Humanist Association and UU History and Heritage Society
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Black Humanism developed within a Unitarian context but spread far beyond. We consider UU ministers Lewis McGee, a 1940s Unitarian minister in South Chicago, and 20th century William R. Jones, and how their work continues today. We conclude with a powerful voice of Black Humanism from outside the UU context.
