Laurie Carter Noble is a lecturer and writer who is working on a biography of Olympia Brown, focusing on her lifelong advocacy of the advancement of women in education, the professions and the ministry. Noble is a life-long UU, and has been a member of the Sanctuary movement, Women’s Strike for Peace and the anti-racism task forces in the UU churches where she has been a member. Her articles have appeared in several publications including UU World, Michigan History Magazine and Philadelphia.

This event is part of a new monthly adult education program at Fourth Universalist! Every third Wednesday of the month, we host a speaker or discussion, touching on issues from religion to current events, Unitarian Universalism to life’s great questions. We’ll have opportunities for discussion and connection, as well as food and drink. All are welcome!
