We invite you to be one of 6 women who join us on a journey into U.S. race history. Journey begins with a meeting at 4pm Monday afternoon, November 9th at the Cincinnati Best Western Riverfront followed by a morning at the Cincinnati Underground Railroad Museum on Tuesday, November 10th. Then we will travel to Memphis, Selma, Montgomery and Birmingham, exploring museums and historic sites that tell the truth about what really happened in our country between “White People” and “People of Color.” We will return to Cincinnati on November 8. Time will be spent in reflection (e.g. journaling, sharing) in the evening to help us integrate the experiences of the day. Our expectation is that this will be a transformational experience for everyone, no matter where we are on our developmental-activist journeys toward dealing with our own embedded racisms and dismantling White supremacy in our respective spheres of influence. We anticipate forming new connections for unbinding the wounds and injuries of the past while creating new solutions toward a more equitable and just union.
