The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion would like to invite you to join us for the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s National Day of Racial Healing which will place on January 19, 2021. This National Day started in 2017 and takes place annually on the Tuesday following Martin Luther King Day. Join us for a variety of events throughout the day. Share your experiences and ideas about racial healing on social media using the following hashtags #HowWeHeal and #CFAESHowWeHeal.

CFAES will be able to engage around the topic of racial healing in a variety of ways starting with a facilitated discussion of the movie 13th from 9:30-11:00AM. In 13th, filmmaker Ava DuVernay addresses the history of racial inequality in the United States, focusing on the fact that the nation’s prisons are disproportionately filled with African Americans.13th is available free on YouTube. Participants are asked to view the film ahead of the discussion. The discussion of 13th will be followed by a presentation on The Inner Work of Racial Justice from 11:30AM-1:00PM followed by panel discussion on Racial Healing from 1:152:45PM. The culminating event at 3:00PM will be viewing the live stream of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation National Day of Racial Healing. Registration is required for all events. We encourage faculty, staff, and students to share their ideas for racial healing on social media using the #HowWeHeal and #CFAESHowWeHeal.
