Want to learn more about racism and its effects on all of us? The Unity Library has many resources – books, videos, and online content – that are appropriate for children and adults.
Published in 2016, "Invisible Man, Got the Whole World Watching: A Young Black Man's Education," by Mychal Denzel Smith explores the question, “How do you learn to be a black man in America?” while coming of age during the presidency of Barack Obama and witnessing the deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and too many more.

Beloved Community Staff Team
In 2016, the Beloved Community Staff Team was formed at Unity Church to strengthen and coordinate Unity’s anti-racism and multi-cultural work, and to share the stories of this journey with the wider community. We commit to sharing the struggles, the questions, and the collaborations here at Unity and in the wider world of our faith and city. The current members of the team include Rev. KP Hong, Rev. Kathy Hurt, Barbara Hubbard, Drew Danielson, Rev. Shay MacKay, Laura Park, Angela Wilcox, Pauline Eichten, and Erika Sanders.
