Adult Religious Education – Guest Speaker Catherine Roberts, Executive Director of the Yates Museum
March 27 @ 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Guest Speaker Catherine Roberts, Executive Director of the Yates Museum – Learn about contributions from many Unitarian Universalists who have helped preserve several African Heritage Museum houses, archaeology sites, brick streets, and historic churches within the endangered, and only remaining, post-Civil War settlement of Freedmen’s Town National Register Historic District-CPL. It is the only Urban settlement of its kind in the United States; founded and built by previously enslaved families and their descendants immediately after Emancipation in 1865. Since 1985, over 500 low income African American families have been displaced, their homes and 6 historic churches demolished illegally, and the remaining 7 historic churches are still in jeopardy.
