To Be Continued: African American History Month

Dear Ones,

As we finish out the month of January, I want to again thank all the great volunteers who do good work throughout the year for UUFB. If I start naming names, I’m sure to inadvertently forget someone. In truth, everyone does something that contributes to this joyful sanctuary, if only by offering their presence in some way. Thank You!

February is African American History month, and we’re planning one service addressing this history centered around the children’s book Freedom Over Me, by award-winning African American author/illustrator Ashley Bryan.

Outside our walls, Beaufort has an impressive list of programs celebrating African American History month.

The Penn Center will present an evening with Dr. Gretchen Sorin at Frissell Hall TONIGHT, Jan. 30th, at 6:00 p.m. Dr. Sorin is the author of Driving While Black: African American Travel and the Road to Civil Rights. Penn is hosting a reception, presentation, and book signing. This program is FREE and open to the public.

USCB (University of South Carolina Beaufort) has a series of programs also, supported by South Carolina Humanities. Most programs are free and open to the public. You can learn more at this link.

I hope to see you at one of these enriching events!

Rev. Lori Hlaban
