Last year, the UU Urban Ministry and the Roxbury Historical Society invited Aabid Allibhad, a PhD candidate in the Department of African and African American Studies at Harvard University, to write a report focused on the history of racism and enslavement at First Church in Roxbury. 

In February, the report entitled,  "Race & Slavery at the First Church in Roxbury (The Colonial Period 1631-1775)", was published.  It is available by clicking on the image, or by visiting the History of First Church in Roxbury page of our website.
