Frederick Douglass - What is the Fourth Of July to me?

Editor's note:

Not until we no longer have to make a point to say "Black Lives Matter" will all Americans be truly free and independent. Unitarian Univeralists covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. No exceptions.

Systemic racism - Schooling

At First Universalist Church of Rochester, NY, the social action committee has chosen racism as their focus for action this year, 2019 - 2020.

Educating ourselves about racism is a daunting challenge because most of systemic racism is unconscious to the people who benefit from it.

Today, we are starting a feature called "Systemic racism" which will highlight some of the forms that racism takes.

There are many forms of systemic racism and perhaps one of the major forms is how racism plays out in our schooling system. 59 years ago this month, schools were forcibly integrated in the Jim Crow south of the United States. You can learn a little bit about this by clicking here.
