History as taught in school, and especially Black History, is either missing a lot of key facts, or distorts them. Our Society Leader, Jone Johnson Lewis, will introduce a few of the topics that are still commonly misunderstood or ignored, including why Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, why Anthony Burns matters to American history, and the persistent myth of black Confederate soldiers.
Jone Lewis has been an Ethical Culture Leader for 26 years and shares the Society’s interests in both social justice and personal and interpersonal transformation.
February theme: Persistence. What does it mean to be a person of persistence? What does it mean to be a community of persistence?
