All are welcome to join B.L.A.C. For more information visit the B.L.A.C. Facebook page Black Lives & Allies in Community. First UU is partnering with B.L.A.C. for this Love Sounds event.

This event is a live stream Zoom concert event with the purpose of promoting a unified spirit of radical love and community engagement in the pursuit of ending violence against black bodies. The event will include music by RnB hip hop artists “The Foreign Arm,” musical artist “Greg G,” and poetry by The 2020 “PuroSlam” Poetry Team. The event will be hosted by Rev. Addae Kraba, minister from the Universalist Unitarian Church in New Braunfels. A special candle lighting “Say Their Name” ceremony will take place where we speak the names of those slain from terror acts of policing by law enforcement agents. Please have a candle available to join us.
