Event description

Description

Healing Us is space for People of Color who identify as black, African-American, or of the African diaspora to engage in activities and dialogue focused on affirming and healing within this community. We encourage people to bring all of their emotions.

It is our hope that offering space for ongoing healing will allow for effective and productive interracial dialogue, i.e. our ongoing Community Gatherings, where people from various backgrounds come together to engage, heal, and transform ourselves and our world. This space is facilitated by Crystal Irby! Learn more about Crystal Irby here.

People of Color is a broad term encompassing various racialized groups. The history of the United States demonstrates a unique form of ongoing and historical terror and abuse experienced in chattel slavery and perpetual societal lies of Black inferiority against black People of Color.

Because there has not been a process of true reconciliation and repair within the United States, negative effects continue to disproportionately affect the Black population in comparison to other racialized groups. These effects include ongoing wealth gaps, achievement gaps, poverty, housing discrimination, disproportionate criminal justice outcomes, and more.


Funded in part by South Carolina Humanities, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Humanities along with individual, corporate, foundation and institutional contributions.
