Learning Objectives, Workshop 11: Civil Rights

In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program

Participants will:

  • Learn about decisions and actions of Unitarian Universalist congregations in the South in response to the Civil Rights Movement
  • Learn about the Civil Rights era work of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of New Orleans and its minister, Albert D'Orlando
  • Consider how they personally might respond to threats of violence against their own congregation
  • Understand that while, in retrospect, the "right" and "wrong" sides in history can seem clear, all people (including Unitarian Universalists) must struggle to discern appropriate responses to the events of their own time without benefit of hindsight.

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
