South Side Celebration of 150th Anniversary of 13th Amendment

What: Learning, Commemoration, Conversation

When: Friday, December 18 @ 7:00pm

Where: Morgan Park Methodist Church

11030 S Longwood Dr, Chicago, IL 60643

Rev Karen Mooney invites UCH to join Beverly Unitarian and a south side collaboration of churches in celebrating a turning point in history. On December 18, 1865 the 13th amendment abolishing slavery in the United States of America​was certified into law.

Hear a message from Pastor Dennis Langdon, a presentation by HipHop Detoxx, teachings about our 150 year history provided by Dr. Kelly Harris & Kim Dulaney of Chicago State University and stay for discussion after.

With violence and unrest on the front pages of our newsfeeds and papers, we wonder together what we can learn from looking back and how we can move forward together. Following the words of the Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr., it is time to cash the check written to people of color – time to deliver on the promise for “the riches of freedom and the security of justice.”

Join BUC in examining the progress made and the work yet to be done in creating a free and equal country for all people.
