“Moving from race to culture to creation is important, transformative, and takes work. And a lot of reps. I help people, communities, and organizations find strength in healing that is holistic and resilient. Together let’s set a course for healing historical and racialized trauma carried in the body and the soul. I am a healer. I help people rise through the suffering’s edge. I am a cultural trauma navigator. I am a communal provocateur and coach. I consider it my job in this moment to make the invisible visible.” - Resmaa Menakem

This virtual conversation is part of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s National Day of Racial Healing event series that is rooted in truth-telling, offering people, organizations and communities conversations centered on racial healing, bringing people together to take collective action for a more just and equitable world.
