UU Common Read: An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States

The UU Common Read is an annual event which invites participants to read and discuss the same book in a given period of time. A Common Read can build community in congregations and the UU movement by giving diverse people a shared experience, shared language, and a basis for deep, meaningful conversations.

The UU Common Read for this year is An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States. The book is available in the UU Bookstore and from all major booksellers, as well as in the library. We invite everyone to read and join us for a discussion of this seminal read.

Today’s discussion will focus on foundational myths regarding the European colonization of the North American continent, e.g.: “The settlers successfully conquered the wilderness, which was largely uninhabited when they arrived”, and “The demise of the indigenous population was an unintended consequence of European immigration.”

Coffee and conversation will take place after the service, with refreshments provided by Tracy.

The service will be held at The Historic Campbell Home, 190 W. Winter St., Delaware, OH on the northeast corner of Elizabeth Street and West Winter Street. There is parking behind the building with handicap accessibility, as well as on the street.
