Resilience Week 4: The Resilience of Black History

Throughout our abundant lives, we can find simple and quick ways to connect our learning and growth at church to our lives at home. 

At Church:

We discovered the resilience of Black History encouraged by our 2nd UU principle: Justice, equity and compassion in human relations.

Morning Time: 

Consider this thought by Rev Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality…. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”

Drive Time:

Listen to: “A Change Is Gonna Come” by Sam Cooke

Meal Time: 

Talk about: What have you learned in school about the Civil Rights movement? What are things you can do as a family to celebrate Black History Month? 

Bed Time:

Read: Whoever You Are, The Other Side, If You Were a Kid During the Civil Rights Movement

Family Time:

Watch: Garrett’s Gift, Hidden Figures, Queen of Katwe
