In this current climate the issue of racial division is being exacerbated by the political rhetoric of the day. To combat this decay in the social fabric we at the NAACP believe that by highlighting the positive and resilient voices of communities of color we will be using a tool that is time tested reinvigorating heart to heart communications and connections

The local branch of the NAACP has been a central presence in the African American community and is well placed as a community partner to speak to the ideas of multiculturalism and inclusion

The image of African Americans and Black folks in general has always been under attack by those who despise diversity and recently there seems to be a hardening of this position. To foster positive understanding and exchanges this program will give voice to those in the struggle who can tell their stories as true counterbalance to the negative and false narrative being espoused by those who oppose a global connected world and people

The participant will be treated to an evening at the historic Mims house which is the oldest Black owned property in Eugene, Oregon. The participants will engage with local Black artists and/or activists to renew our shared humanity and understanding in these trying times.
