On Saturday, Feb. 21, the UUTH GRUUP of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Winston-Salem had its first UUTH FORUM, titled, “Lets Have a Conversation About Race.”

The forum was designed to provide space for a candid conversation about race relations in the United States post-Ferguson, Miss.

The panelists included, Rev. Willard Bass, associate pastor of Green Street United Methodist Church; Principal Travis Taylor of Carver High School; Marcus Lane, president of Young Professionals of the Winston-Salem Urban League; and Steve Virgil, professor of law at Wake Forest University.

The panelists provided profound insight into the many, often subtle, ways racial inequality can be seen in the United States.

Panelists offered suggestions for ways that faith communities can better address issues of racial injustice.

Members of the audience shared personal narratives about their experiences with race-inequality as African-Americans.

“The forum has set the stage for authentic conversations addressing the issue of racial inequality,” says Sherine Thomas, youth director at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship and event organizer.
