The Rev. Dr. David Herndon, Senior Minister. "Black History in the Making"

On May 18, 1966, Dr. King delivered the Ware Lecture at the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association. The title of his address was "Don't Sleep through the Revolution." As we celebrate Black History Month, we may have a sense that a lot of black history is being made right now! How can we connect with that history in the making, and not, as Dr. King said, sleep through the revolution?
