Featuring Rev. Dr. Qiyamah A. Rahman plus an Open Mic
Rev. Dr. Qiyamah A. Rahman is a writer, educator, scholar, public speaker, workshop leader, and Unitarian Universalist minister. She has traveled to and conducted research in South Africa, Ghana and the United States and written, presented, and taught diverse audiences about ending gender-based violence.
Previously she worked as District Executive with the Unitarian Universalist Association and the Southern Region. She was the first woman of color to serve in that capacity. She served on the board of the Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation from 1992-1996. Qiyamah is currently conducting research on the Presence of Black Women in UUism and is also editing the first ever anthology on Black UU Clergywomen.
Her interest in the history of Black UU women grew out of her experiences as a young Black girl fighting to love herself and to find role models in a racist and sexist society. She endeavors to uncover and voice the personal stories of Black UU women and to claim a deeper theological understanding of human existence and the relationship to the sacred and divine.
