Black Lives Matter at Unity San Francisco

A Message from Rev. Jackie Hawkins

History helps us to understand who we are.  It helps us to better understand ourselves.  And who you are needs to have a sense of self.

Black history supports our country’s quest to understand itself as a collective.  And this history tells a story.  The story of Black life experiences and contributions to this country is rich.  It is beautiful.  It is complex.  It is diverse.  It is multiethnic.  This beautiful, complex mosaic truly is significant.  And it bears repeating and celebration.

In Unity, we believe there is one presence and one power, God the good, omnipotence.

Well, that power is diverse.  That power is inclusive.  That power resides in each of us.  And so for us to understand who we are, the story must include all of us.  That is why Black History Month is important.
