Special Event


“To Light the Fires” 
A Guest Sermon by Lise Breen

Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church

Sunday, February 9th, 10AM

Join Gloucester UU parishioners on Sunday, February 9th for a guest sermon by Lise Breen: To Light the Fires: A Sketch of The Daltons, Black Citizens of Gloucester and the World”


Lise will remind us of Gloucester’s indisputable, tangled history with slavery with some accounts from Gloucester. One former enslaved African American, Gloucester Dalton, joined other Universalists at the laying of the cornerstone for the Gloucester church. Lise will introduce other Dalton family members and discuss their roles and identities as slaves, as fugitives and, finally, as extraordinary political activists. She hopes to meet with you afterwards to answer questions and discuss plans for an African American Heritage Trail.

*****

About Lise Breen: While selecting content for the Gloucester HarborWalk, Lise came across evidence of our African American history. She hopes to garner support for an African American Heritage Trail to reveal the extent of slavery here and, more happily, recognize those who worked so hard to end it. Lise worked as a Research Associate with The Brooklyn Museum and, more recently, as a consultant documenting accounts from the rapidly changing fishing industry. She is a member of the Sargent House Board and the Gloucester Harbortown Cultural District Steering Committee.
