Interest in Side With Love / Love Resists Political Education Series: Unfinished Business
Unfinished Business: A Study of DuBois’ Reconstruction in America to Now
4 Wednesdays: June 10, June 17, July 1 and July 8
This political education series offered by Side With Love and Love Resists will explore the history of the reconstruction era (post-civil war), to give us a deeper understanding of the origin of today’s systemic racism in policing and mass incarceration as well as the Black-led movements resisting it. In this pivotal protest moment sparked by the law-enforcement-linked murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and Tony McDade - only the most recent Black lives to be lost to police violence - we’ll learn from the past to be ready for today, and to build towards the world we dream of.
We’ll be using the 4-part documentary “Reconstruction: America After the Civil War” narrated by Henry Louis Gates Jr. as a starting point for reflection, discussion, spiritual grounding in UU values, and action.
The political education group will begin each Wednesday at 5 pm PT/8 pm ET and you can join an hour earlier (4 pm PT/7 pm ET) to watch the film together, or you can watch on your own any time ahead of the discussion group.
