UUCQ Anti-Racism Reading Group to Start in March 2020
Are you a racist?
☐ Yes ☐ No ☐ Maybe ☐ I don't know
Come to the UUCQ Anti-Racism Reading Group to help you figure out your answer.
Our first UU principle is to honor the inherent worth and dignity of every person. This group has been formed to offer participants the opportunity to learn about and discuss racism in a safe environment. Our goal is to educate, open our hearts and minds, and grow spiritually.
We will meet for three consecutive months. The first meeting will take place on Thursday, March 12, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at UUCQ. We will discuss the book How To Be Less Stupid About Race by Crystal M. Fleming. (This book can be purchased on the website “inSpirit: UUA Bookstore and Giftshop.”)
ALL are welcome. (Even if you’re not a racist, come anyway. You’re sure to learn something new and enjoy a lively discussion.)

TTThe Lewis H. Latimer House Museum received an award of $1000.00 from the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Queens to support the museum’s Tinker Lab program for local children in honor of Lewis H. Latimer, the African American inventor who helped found the congregation in the early 1900’s. (Sherrise Figueroa, Director, Latimer Gardens Community Center/Cornerstone; Al Rankins, President, Lewis H. Latimer Fund, Inc.; Sheryl Lynch, Trustee of the Board, Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Queens; Ran Yan, Executive Director, Lewis H. Latimer House Museum.)
The Tinker Lab is the key educational program at Lewis H. Latimer House Museum to serve high-quality, innovative hands-on activities treating science and technology as an integral part of the humanities. In the Tinker Lab, participants use an array of technologies such as Scratch, Ev3, and Wedo, and build from scratch using various micro-controllers, proto boards, and coding programs. The museum sees the drive to build in three-dimensional spaces and coding as an invaluable 21st century literacy skillset.
