Rev. Bill Gupton
As America continues to struggle with its own racial reckoning, Unitarian Universalist institutions, large and small, are also reflecting on our own disturbing history of racism. While many individuals and groups of UUs have been active in racial justice movements, from abolition to civil rights to Black Lives Matter, we also have a shameful and painful history (and present) of racial injustices within our own UU communities. The racial reckoning we find ourselves facing as Unitarian Universalists illuminates uncomfortable truths from the distant past, unconscionable realities in the recent past and present, and completely unpredictable futures. Today’s service, which will also feature our Choir, is the first of three that will explore related topics; the remaining two will take place April 10 (“Article 2 and You”) and April 24 (a service about our UU General Assembly).
