How does the legacy of slavery continue to shape our communities in 2018?  How do we tell the truth about multi-generational trauma and its impact on our youth?  And how do we begin to heal and restore our communities?


Healing begins by simply telling the truth.  Truthfulness is the foundation of all human virtue.
