Sunday, September 26th A Lasting Reconstruction Samantha McCoy
In the wake of the Civil War, over 150 years ago, the United States attempted a period of Reconstruction to both rebuild and reunite the nation. Although some states saw significant improvements in the fields of legal, political, and economic equality, many of those changes fell apart after about eight or nine years. What lessons does 19th century Reconstruction have for us today? With UUCD, and dozens of other UU congregations, having adopted the 8th Principle in recent months, many Unitarian Universalists are experiencing renewed hope toward building a true Beloved Community in our nation and beyond. Join Samantha McCoy to explore these ideas and consider what will bring positive, authentic, and lasting change in our communities.
