A diverse, welcoming community of open hearts and minds since 1948
The Ware Lecture is the seminal event of the annual UUA General Assembly -- like a TED lecture just for us. This year is the 90th lecture, and the list of lecturers so homored is long and amazing. Martin Luther King (1966), Kurt Vonnegut (1986), May Sarton (1982), Norman Lear (1992), and Morris Dees (2000) have all been Ware Lecturers at UU GAs.
This year's Ware Lecture will be delivered by Maria Hinajosa, journalist and host of NPR's Latino USA and PBS's One-on-One. She has won many awards, from the Robert F. Kennedy Jounralism Award, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists' Radio Award, the New York Society of Professional Journalists Deadline Award, the National Council of La Raza's Rubén Salazar Communications Award (named for Mexican American journalist Rubén Salazar), and an Associated Press award. In addition, she was named one of the 25 Most Influential Latinos In Contemporary American Culture by the HuffPost Latino Voices and one of the 100 Most Influential Hispanics by Hispanic Business magazine for her work as a reporter for CBS, NPR, and CNN.
