Whose Faith is it Anyway? – A Black UU Theological Framework

Black Lives of UU at UU Montclair and the Undoing Racism Committee invite you to join us for a live multi-faith panel discussion. 

January 30, 2019 – 7:30-10:00 PM – Peierls Room, UUCM 

This live discussion will explore the ways in which Black Unitarian Universalists and others from related traditions make sense of our collective faith journeys toward liberation and an affirmation of wholeness. We will consider: 

  • What are the distinctions between how Unitarian Universalism is promoted in the larger society vs. our experiences of the faith? 
  • How would a Unitarian Universalism grounded in Blackness be different from what has been taught and promoted about this faith tradition? 
  • How do we thoughtfully and responsibly build our own theology that centers the best of Unitarian Universalism and our experience as Black people of faith and consciousness?

Moderated by Rev. Mykal Slack & Dr. Takiyah Amin

Panelists include: Donte Hilliard an applied social justice practitioner, E.N. Hill a third year Masters of Divinity student, Kimberly Hampton, a consultant with churches and non-profits, DeReau Farrar, Director of Music, First Unitarian Portland and Dr. Stephanie Mitchem, professor.
