Black Pioneers in a White Denomination

Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, 1994 - Religion - 258 pages
5 Reviews
Focusing largely on two pioneering black ministers -- Egbert Ethelred Brown, founder of the first Unitarian church in Harlem, and Lewis A. McGee, founder of the Interracial Free Religious Fellowship in Chicago's black ghetto -- Black Pioneers paints a painful yet important portrait of racism in liberal religion. Includes compelling stories from some of today's more integrated Unitarian Universalist congregations and biographical notes on past and present black Unitarian, Universalist and UU ministers.
