Poetry Sunday has become a UUFDC tradition since it was begun over a decade ago. Last year, poets from among the members and friends of this Fellowship celebrated the 20th year of UUFDC’s existence. This year, we are responding to a request from the Racial Justice Task Force to write and speak about racial justice, knowing that both terms are fraught. We are (alas) all “white,” but we come from and have lived in many parts of this country and elsewhere. Through our experiences we bring diverse perspectives to a complex contemporary social theme with literary roots in Shakespeare’s plays.
Participating poets include David Clowers, Tom Davis, Larry Eriksson, Hanne Gault, Jami Hanreddy, Estella Lauter, Jack Redell, Mark Richards and Tom Toerpe.
