Learning Together: Imagine A Better World
Each month we are dedicating one session to a different aspect of anti-racism work, with our theme guiding us toward which aspect to focus on. When it comes to imagination, we focus on imagining a better world. And who better to celebrate than Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr?
Dr. King’s words in his “I Have a Dream” speech can be revisited through the lens of today’s environment with even more impact. White UU’s were not very aware of racism in the last decade. Yet, now white UU’s are working on understanding that racism is still here, deep in our society. Today, more white UU’s realize that they need to imagine a better world. We need to work hard to end racism. Our faith has taken up this work and called on UU’s to build a world without racism. So, what’s one of the ways our faith guides us into becoming a people of imagination? It says, “Imagine and work for a better world.”
We will be talking about Martin Luther King Jr., Georgia Gilmore, and the Civil Rights Movement, and participating in a body prayer.
