“Antoinette Brown Blackwell – Pioneer of Liberal Religion in New Jersey” – Rev. Anthony P. Johnson, Interim Minister.
This service in honor of Women’s History Month explores the life and achievements of Antoinette Brown Blackwell (1825 – 1921). Ordained as a Congregational minister in 1852, she became a popular preacher, lecturer, and writer and was recognized as a minister by the Unitarian Association in 1878. She was a leader in the women’s suffrage movement and was the only well-known leader of her generation of suffragists to live long enough to vote in the 1920 Presidential election. She lived much of her life in New Jersey and founded a Unitarian church in Elizabeth.
Musicians: Society Singers & Ron Levy, piano.
CHILDREN are invited to attend Religious Education program during the services from September until June 12th. No Religious Education Program in Summer!
INFANTS AND TODDLERS can be cared for downstairs in our supervised nursery, which receives a broadcast of the service.
