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
The Beloved Community Staff Team (BCST) strengthens and coordinates Unity’s antiracism and multicultural work, and provides opportunities for congregants and the church to grow into greater intercultural competency. We help the congregation ground itself in the understanding of antiracism and multiculturalism as a core part of faith formation. We support Unity’s efforts to expand our collective capacity to imagine and build the Beloved Community. Here, we share the stories of this journey — the struggles, the questions, and the collaborations — both at Unity and in the wider world.
The current members of the Beloved Community Staff Team include Rev. Kathleen Rolenz, Rev. KP Hong, Rev. Lara Cowtan, Barbara Hubbard, Drew Danielson, Laura Park, Lia Rivamonte and Angela Wilcox.
