Black Lives Matter: A Canadian UU Perspective Roundtable
Thursday, June 25 – 4 pm PT | 5 pm MT | 6 pm CT | 7 pm ET | 8 pm AT – 1.5 hours
Join a panel of Canadian UUs facilitated by CUC staff for an enlightening discussion about systemic racism in Canada. Together we will consider how we can respond individually and as a community of faith, and what we can do to actively oppose and dismantle racism in ourselves, our organization and in our broader community.
Speaking on the panel are:
- Professor Emeritus Dr. Wilburn Hayden, who is currently researching the history of black Canadians and who has previously offered workshops on racism and white supremacy at UU gatherings.
- Rev. Fulgence Ndagijimana is an ordained Unitarian Minister, working with the Saskatoon congregation. He was forced to flee Burundi after being kidnapped and tortured for his work there.
- Rev. Dr. Mark Morrison-Reed served as co-minister of Unitarian Universalists congregations in Rochester, New York, and Toronto with his wife, the Rev. Donna Morrison-Reed, and is the author of a number of books about Black history and Unitarian Universalism. He will speak to the historical perspective and draw on the survey and resulting lecture he offered at the CUC AGM 2013
- Members of the Dismantling Racism Study Group
