Unitarian Universalism: Principled Past – Progressive Future

The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) of today remains very much influenced by the choice of Unitarian Universalists (UU) to answer Dr. Martin Luther King's call and put UU beliefs and Principles on the front line in the struggle for Civil Rights in Selma, Alabama in 1965. Acclaimed historian Mark D. Morrison-Reed recounts how the principles and beliefs of Unitarian Universalism obliged action and how the national UU association embraced the call to action, setting the framework for the activist UUA of today. Read about it in Morrison's new book "The Selma Awakening: How the Civil Rights Movement Tested and Changed Unitarian Universalism", published by Skinner House Books.
