Potluck Lunch and a Movie, January 14 & February 11, 12:00 p.m.

The Social Justice Committee and UU Circle invite everyone to participate in two potluck lunches with movies in the New Year. Events will begin following the service on second Sundays in January and February and focus on the Social Justice Committee’s current theme of racial inequality.

The movie on January 14th will be “The Memphis 13,” a thought-provoking documentary about school desegregation in Memphis, Tennessee when thirteen African-American first graders were transferred to formerly white schools in 1961.

The movie on February 11th will be “When Heritage Equals Hate,” an eye-opening review of original sources that reveal some of the roots and history of white supremacy in the U.S. Please plan to bring a dish, watch the movie and share impressions towards a more connected and peaceful community!
