I Dream of Black Rest: Kwanzaa, Black Excellence, and the UU Experience

If you’re like me, you’ve noticed that UUism is seriously lacking Black folx. And the ones that this faith attracts and retains tend to be the embodiment of Black Excellence. Black UUs can burn brightly as dedicated volunteers, board presidents, church leaders, and the heads of UU organizations but can face equally dramatic burn out. This is both a spiritual and a justice issue. Can a Black American centered holiday be part of the solution? Together we’ll explore what Kwanzaa is, beyond what you can find on a simple Google search, what makes it so soul quenching, and what it can do for UUism.
