“Seven Last Words of the Unarmed”

In our continuing commitment to become allies in the anti-racism movement, join us on zoom to hear “The Seven Last Words of the Unarmed” performed by the award-winning University of Michigan Men’s Glee Club. This haunting choral work sets to music the final words of seven unarmed black men and boys before they were shot and killed. It was written by Atlanta-based composer Joel Thompson as a way for him to channel his sadness and anger over these deaths.   It is highly acclaimed as classical music’s response to the inhumanity of these continued killings.

“How Our Stories and History is a Social Justice Issue”

Presented by Danita Mason Hogans

The way we tell and document history is a social justice issue. In this presentation, our speaker shares her family and community’s multi-generation involvement in the civil rights movement. See how the importance of who tells an historical story and from who’s perspective they are told, is as important as the story itself.

Presented by Professor Peter Balam

Professor Balam has become a favorite summer speaker for UUFN. He has not as of this printing confirmed his topic but he never disappoints.
