As we move forward with the selection of a second minister, you can read up on some African American ministers who contributed much to Unitarian Universalism. You’ll find these titles in the book cart:

Here are a few more books featured in the cart this week:

  • Before There Was Mozart. This illustrated book for ages 5-9 describes the unusual 18th century life of Joseph Boulogne, son of an enslaved woman who became a violin virtuoso.
  • Interpreter of Maladies. In these short stories by Jumpha Lahiri, you can delve into the lives of some fictional Indian people, some in their home country and some living the diaspora.
  • Navigating a fierce identification with roots while creating an entirely new culture that’s a key component of America’s future—that is Living in Spanglish, as described by author and journalist Ed Morales.
