(BPRW) COMMUNITY HEALING DAYS 2021 TO FOCUS ON EMOTIONAL REPARATIONS FOR BLACK PEOPLE
(Black PR Wire) NEW HAVEN, CT — Community Healing Network has introduced the schedule for the annual observance of Community Healing Days, developing this weekend, October 15-17. This yr’s theme is: The Case for Emotional Reparations. Launched in 2006 and endorsed by the late Dr. Maya Angelou, the celebration of Community Healing Days is designed to “put time for healing” on the prime of the Black group’s agenda—therapeutic, as Dr. Angelou mentioned, “from the lies we’ve been told and the ones we’ve told ourselves.”
Community Healing Days is considered one of a variety of methods developed by CHN to mobilize Black individuals throughout the African Diaspora to heal from, and extinguish, the lie that Black persons are inferior. “That lie,” mentioned CHN Founder and President Enola G. Aird, “is the most powerful weapon ever formed against us, the root cause of the distinct challenges we face as a people, and the greatest crime against our humanity. Unless and until we free ourselves and our children from this lie, our lives will continue to be devalued and we will continue to be dehumanized.”
The three-day Community Healing Days 2021 digital celebration will function:
1. On Friday, October 15, 1:00-2:30 pm, Eastern time, Black Scholars Making the Case for Emotional Reparations. Panelists will embrace: Dr. Jameta Barlow, George Washington University; Dr. Huberta Jackson-Lowman, Florida A & M University; Dr. Onaje Muid, Male Co-Chair of N’COBRA’s Health Commission; and Dr. Raymond Winbush, Morgan State University. They will give attention to the emotional harm attributable to the lie and what we will—and should—do to restore it;
2. On Saturday, October 16, 1:00-2:00 pm, Eastern time, An Hour of Emotional Refreshment with Dr. Jameta Barlow; and
