White in America: Can I Get a Witness?
Rev. Jane Page, Guest Minister

Rev. Jane explores the meaning of whiteness in America, especially from the perspective of a woman born in 1950 in the rural south (where she has remained). Her journey of recovery from a racist past is ongoing and includes her recent participation in this summer’s Mississippi Civil Rights Tour sponsored by the Living Legacy Project of our Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice.
