SUMMIT, NJ - DiDi Delgado, a poet, activist and organizer for Black Lives Matter in Cambridge, MA, will preach at Beacon Unitarian Universalist Congregation on October 1, at both 9:30 and 11:15 a.m.
Delgado is the first collaborative organizer for Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism (BLUU), an organizing collective of black Unitarian Universalists working to expand the role and visibility of black people within the Unitarian Universalist faith. She will speak on the second of three Sundays when the collection plates will be dedicated to supporting BLUU.
After the morning services, Delgado will lead a conversation from 12:45 to 2:45 p.m. in the sanctuary. The public is invited to attend any of the events.
Delgado helped organize Boston's Fight Supremacy March on August 19, a week after the white nationalist march in Charlottesville. She has served on the leadership team of the ACLU’s Boston Coalition for Police Accountability and the Boston Branch of the NAACP’s Young Adult Committee.
As a poet, she is currently Head of Operations at the Society of Urban Poetry (S.O.U.P.), a collective of artists and musicians created to help shed light and bridge gaps across gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, faith, ability and age. She also facilitates writing workshops at the Haley House and the Dudley Café in Dudley Square.
