“Learning from our past, committed to our future” – Karen Madrone.
This sermon will explore how the American Unitarian Association, the precursor for the Unitarian Universalist Association prior to the 1961 merger, worked with early Jamaican and African American Unitarian ministers, for good or for ill, and how the effects of their treatment are still being felt today. We are constantly re-living our history. Let us remember it and let us make sure we learn from it.
Karen Madrone is a seminarian at Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York. She and her wife and their pets moved to New York City from Greensboro, North Carolina in August 2016. Prior to attending seminary, Karen served in many leadership roles in her home church, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Greensboro and she was a Program Specialist with the National Center for Homeless Education. This summer Karen is completing a Clinical Pastoral Education unit at Mount Sinai Hospital. She is currently in Aspirant status to become a UU minister.
