The general public is invited to this free event sponsored by the Maine Human Rights Coalition at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Bangor, 120 Park St, Saturday, Dec 20 from 6:00-8:00 pm. Rev. Arthur Vaeni of UUSB, will give the invocation. James Varner of the MHRC, will do the Kwanzaa presentation which is a Black cultural celebration. A sampling of ethnic foods will be served. There will also be a brief vigil held for the several Black males killed by police in recent months and the victims’ families. The vigil format will hopefully bring prayer and light to these acts of violence and racism. For questions about the event, call James Varner at 827-4493.
