Blue Hills Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Rice Lake will honor Black History month by focusing on the history of progress UU’s have made in our efforts to be inclusive to people of all cultures, races and backgrounds.   Arthur Thexton of  Wauwatosa’s UU West congregation will present a short exploration of our Unitarian and Universalist histories as they relate to race and racism during our February 5th service at Blue Hills UU, 10 a.m.
