Skin in the Game

19th Century Unitarian Lessons from the Lives of Moncure Conway and Peter H.  Clark.  Tim Kraus, First Unitarian Church of Cincinnati.   As Unitarian Universalists continue to address their legacy of white supremacy and racism, historical perspective is useful in order to better understand the issues. Both Moncure Conway and Peter H. Clark were 19th c. anti-racist warriors in Cincinnati. Conway, a son of Southern aristocracy whose family enslaved many people, was the radical abolitionist minister at First Unitarian Church. Peter H. Clark was America’s first black socialist and also a member of First Church. They were unlikeliest of allies in pitched racial battles over slavery and freedom before and after the Civil War. Join us as Tim Kraus explores the complicated relationship between Unitarians (and Universalists) and the movements for human freedom in Southwest Ohio.   Service Leader:  Curt Ellison
