Fanny Barrier Williams, A Unitarian Life

Fannie Barrier Williams (1855 – 1944) was an African American educator, artist, musician, and journalist who advocated for social justice and for the rights of Black women in particular. She gained international prominence with a speech to the World Parliament of Religions, where she condemned the misuse of Biblical texts to support slavery and discrimination.
