January 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Dr. H.D. De Kirkpatrick, forensic psychologist & public historian
(author of “Marse: A Psychological Portrait of Southern Slave Master and His Legacy of White Supremacy”)

ABOUT THE NATIONAL DAY OF RACIAL HEALING:
The National Day of Racial Healing is a time to contemplate our shared values and create the blueprint together for #HowWeHeal from the effects of racism. Launched on Jan. 17, 2017, it is an opportunity to bring ALL people together in their common humanity and inspire collective action to create a more just and equitable world.
This annual observance is hosted by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) and was created with and builds on the work and learnings of the Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) community partners. Fundamental to this day is a clear understanding that racial healing is at the core of racial equity. This day is observed every year on the Tuesday following Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
