Love Note: Table of Life

Greetings, Dear Ones!

This morning in the Courier Journal there is an article about various locations in Louisville that were suffrage movement sites. Our First U church is one of them, and below you will see the beautiful picture and accompanying script that appears in the piece, which highlights today’s celebration of Women’s Equality Day.

From Rev. Lori

809 S. Fourth St. + 301 York St.
The First Unitarian Church of Louisville at 809 S. Fourth St. welcomed Carrie Chapman Catt and Susan B. Anthony as celebrated speakers during a tour promoting suffrage through the south in 1895. This isn’t surprising, because this congregation has a long history of being open-minded toward alternatively thinking groups.

It was well-known as a haven among the LGTBQ community in the 20th centuryand even as recent as last year it offered itself as a sanctuary to protesters in the Black Lives Matter movement for Breonna Taylor this fall.  Still, I certainly didn’t know those two nationally known suffragists had a history at First Unitarian, too.
