Little Free Library

WBUUC is happy to announce that we have been gifted a beautiful Peace Pole Little Free Library!

A Vision of Peace:

Peace Pole Libraries like this exist only in three other congregations in the world: 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Brown Chapel A.M.E. in Selma, and Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church in Montgomery. These congregations are pillars in the American Civil Rights movement and have been dedicated to bringing peace and equity into our world.

As we dedicate our Little Free Library on October 22, we will also dedicate ourselves to answering the call to learn about race, racism and our role in dismantling white supremacy.

We are asking for donations of books– specifically, books that help adults and children enter into conversations about race and equity. The lists provided, below, have wonderful suggestions of books for all ages. Throughout this year a group of children, youth and adults will tend to this library, as they meet monthly to lead our congregation’s study of the proposed 8th UU Principle. To sign up, contact dre@wbuuc.org.

If you have another title that you would like to add to this list, please contact reassistant@wbuuc.org
