IDEALS Institute to Host 'Race in the South' in Honor of National Day of Racial Healing
W.K. Kellogg Foundation

The IDEALS Institute invites you to join them on Tuesday, Jan. 18, as the nation observes the sixth annual National Day of Racial Healing. The National Day of Racial Healing provides a time and space for people to acknowledge and see the humanity in others, to facilitate trust and to build authentic relationships that begin to bridge divides. Now, more than ever, we need to actively come together and heal.

As part of the National Day of Racial Healing, the IDEALS Institute will host a free virtual "Race in the South" session from 4-6:30 p.m. "Race in the South" is an interactive facilitated learning opportunity in which participants will explore a snapshot of the history of racial inequities in the Southern U.S. region and share collective learning and personal narratives related to this history.  

Because of limited space, you are encouraged to register as soon as possible. Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis and will be limited to 50 participants of the campus community. Please note, this is an interactive experience, not a webinar, in which participants are encouraged to have cameras on and expected to engage with others in breakout sessions.

As we move forward in our campus community and our nation on our collective journey to achieve racial equity, we must find time to speak and hear the truth about past wrongs and present consequences created by individual and systemic racism. You are invited to join IDEALS as the nation collectively recognizes and engages in the important work of racial healing.
