Welcome to the Cuentos Special Collection. Its purpose is to collect, preserve, and document the depth and breadth of the history of encounter between Unitarianism, Universalism, and Unitarian Universalism and Latinx individuals and communities in the United States. It is an evolving historical narrative that continues to this day.
Congregations stepped up, spoke up, marched, and joined Latinxs around social justice issues. Some congregations made space within their communities and worship services to welcome Latinxs. The stories of the congregations and the reflections of the individuals involved belong here, as do more tangible items such as photographs, posters, buttons, and papers.
For decades Latinxs seeking communities of shared values visited our congregations and stayed. For the most part we know very little about any of them. Their stories and reflections will have a home here.
Cuentos is a living collection and we are constantly on the lookout for new acquisitions that document the rich history of encounter between Unitarianism, Universalism, and Unitarian Universalism and Latinx individuals and Latinxs. If you are interesting in donating materials to the Cuentos Special Collection, please contact the archivist.
