|In lieu of their annual pilgrimage, The UUA Living Legacy Project is hosting “Voting Rights: The Struggle Continues,” an on-line program series linking voting history to today’s challenges. The first program is Tuesday, May 26, at 6:30CT, and will continue on every last Tuesday of every month through at least October.
Tuesday’s 1-hour program features Ms. Flonzie Brown Wright, the first African American woman to serve as as elected commissioner in Mississippi, and Larry Rubin, an organizer with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in Southwest Georgia and Northern Mississippi. Moderators are UUs Dr. Janice Marie Johnson, UUA’s Multicultural Ministries and Leadership Director and Rev. Carlton E. Smith, Congregational Life Staff for its Southern Region and a founding member of Organizing Collective for Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism.
