BACKGROUND:

The National Day of Racial Healing brings together individuals and communities in a collective day of healing from the ravaging effects of racism. Launched in 2017, the National Day of Racial Healing is a call to action for racial healing for all people. It originated as part of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s national Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation efforts.

MORE INFORMATION:

The theme for NDORH 2021 is To the Beat of One Drum. The history of the drum represents the rhythm of the heartspace that unifies us throughout the human diaspora. When we move collectively to the beat of the drum, we create beautiful synergy, empowering ourselves to true personal, cultural, communal and, ultimately, institutional transformation.
