Event description
Lecture 1 of the Minns Fall 2021 Three-Lecture Series, The Coming Good Society

About this event

In the fall 2021 Minns Lectures series, Rev. Dr. William F. Schulz discusses today's changing understanding of rights, covering ground explored in The Coming Good Society: Why New Realities Demand New Rights, a 2020 monograph that he co-authored with Sushma Raman.

In this opener to the Minns Committee's fall 2021 three-lecture series, Rev. Dr. Schulz draws from his years as a human rights advocate to delve into the question of what is a right?

Organizer Minns Lectures Committee

Organizer of William F. Schulz: Where Do Rights Come From?

The Minns Lectures Committee of First Church Boston and King’s Chapel sponsors an annual series of lectures by UU ministers on religious topics of historical importance and contemporary relevance. For its spring 2019 series, the Minns Lectures Committee hosted Rev. Dr. Colin Bossen, who challenged us to ask how Unitarian Universalists can respond to populism and white supremacy in the age of Trump. Video  for these lectures and for earlier ones, along with additional details on the lectures, can be found at The committee welcomes innovative proposals for lectures in 2021 and beyond. Guidelines on proposal submissions and a short history of this unique lecture series are also posted on the website.
