The Blue Hills UU’s will hear from and about “The Great Dissenter” this coming Sunday, January 16th. Our many talented member Brian Rude will share the interesting profile he’s researched on John Marshall Harlan -the only dissenter in the famous Plessy versus Ferguson Supreme Court decision of 1896. As well as becoming well known for his dissension in many other Supreme Court decisions, mostly on the side of civil rights, Justice Harlan’s life story is interesting in many aspects, some more surprising than others.
The Service begins at 10 a.m. via Zoom, although those wishing to attend in person are encouraged to join us in the fellowship hall, 210 W. Messenger Street in Rice Lake. All those attending in person must be fully vaccinated and at the present time, masking and proper distancing will be observed.
