This very special live (on Zoom) worship service – created and hosted by FUUSB’s Racial Justice and Worship Associates Teams, and shared with Rabbi Jan Salzman and Congregation Ruach haMaqom in the Old North End – will feature the art and poetry of Rajnii Eddins. The service, which starts at 10 a.m. at this link, will continue for 90 minutes to allow time for responses and interaction between congregants and the artist.
Originally from Seattle, Washington, Spoken Word Poet & Teaching Artist Rajnii Eddins has been engaging diverse community audiences for over 27 years. He was the youngest member of the Afrikan American Writers Alliance at age 11 and has been actively sharing with youth and community in Vermont since 2010 – including his latest book, Their Names Are Mine. Rajnii’s work confronts white supremacy while emphasizing the need to affirm our mutual humanity. rajniieddins.com
