A proposition will be made in this sermon that the first humanist in the United States were people of African descent. They brought with them a philosophy that is rooted in every attempt America has made to envision a more perfect union. We will explore two moments where explicit and implicit humanist constructs informed the movement of human dignity.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Rev. Hutt was unable to join us. We look forward to her returning in the future!
