M446INT(a) African Americans and the UU

This course will familiarize you with both the African-American experience within the liberal religious community and the community’s attitudes toward African Americans. Who were these African-American women and men and when and how did they become part of this religious movement? What were the attitudes they met among Anglo-Americans and what was the institutional response to them? Using both primary and secondary resources we will come at these topics from two perspectives: the national and the local.
