Breathe: A Letter to My Sons by Imani Perry
The UUA describes the book: “Emotionally raw and deeply reflective, Perry’s book challenges society to recognize Black children as deserving of humanity. She shares her fear and frustration for her African American sons in an increasingly racist atmosphere in which white people at times seem irredeemable. However, as a mother, feminist, writer, and intellectual, Perry offers an unfettered expression of love—finding beauty and possibility in life. … The New York Times calls Breathe ‘an elixir of history, ancestry and compassion, which, together, become instruction…a parent’s unflinching demand, born of inherited trauma and love, for her children’s right simply to be possible.’” Zoom Link will be sent to those who are members of UUCMC or who reach out to a member.
Note from Rev. Craig: A special worship service inspired by the themes of Breathe will be presented on Sunday, April 18th; be thinking of ways you might contribute to the proceedings!
