Racial Healing-Justice-Unity Series (RHJU)
December 10, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Topic: “A Conversation with Dr. Robert C. Henderson”
Dr. Henderson is an elected member of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’í’s of the U.S., a U.S. Federal Commissioner on the Martin Luther King, Jr. Federal Holiday Commission,
involved in the creation of the California State Supreme Court Commission on Race and Ethnic Bias, and a Board Chair of Community Neighborhood Technologies (CNT), a not-for-profit organization that focuses on urban sustainability and social equity that received the MacArthur Foundation “Genius” award. The Racial Healing-Justice-Unity Baha’i Inspired Series (RHJU) offers moderated presentations and discussions on the most vital and challenging issue for humanity: eliminating racism. We endeavor to participate in this space with a humble posture of learning, seeking to elevate our knowledge, ignite volition and then act.
Presentation topics address anti-Black racism, activities to transform the hearts of humankind and break outworn societal constructs, efforts and knowledge to increase understanding and acceptance of Black culture, the global significance of eliminating racism, acquiring skill sets that thwart racism and promote healing racial trauma, and more. This is a collaborative space for all who are united by a commonly held commitment to “carrying forward an ever-advancing civilization”, to which the precedent for that lofty and attainable goal is the eradication of racism. Without that accomplishment there can be no justice and no real peace for humanity.
