UUWF Meeting Features Guest Speaker, Catherine Oneyemelukwe, on April 18th



Deeper Multi-cultural Understanding and Racial, Social, and Economic Justice


UUWF will host a special speaker via Zoom, following our regular church service and coffee on Sunday, April 18th. We hope to attract a wide audience from our church, other UU churches, and the wider Bryan-College Station community in international issues and multi-cultural understanding.


Catherine Onyemelukwe is our featured guest speaker. Catherine has had a long and interesting career as an educator, Peace Corps Volunteer, author, blogger, speaker and active UU member. She lived in Nigeria for over twenty years before returning to the United States. Interest in the U.S. was spiked initially in the 1960’s when she became the first U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer to marry a host country national. She has published two interesting books, Nigeria Re-visited: My Life and Loves Abroad, and Breaking Kola: An Inside View of African Customs. She will share insights from her life and from the latest book she is reading: Me and White Supremacy, Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor by Layla Saad. We have asked her to comment on the kidnapping of schoolgirls in Nigeria.

Mark your calendars and invite others you believe will be interested in her program on the importance of deep multi-cultural understanding and racial, social, and economic justice.
