Initiated by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation in 2017, the National Day of Racial Healing is a call for intergenerational healing, a celebration of our common humanity, and a commitment to action to create a more just and equitable world.
TRHT-LA’s 2019 National Day of Racial Healing faces our unresolved histories, acknowledges our predecessors, and centers creative tools that have endured across generations and continue to sustain our communities. This year’s theme, Hand in Hand, is an invitation to strengthen these ties that connect us. From January 22 to January 25, 2019, we will provide a free series of programs grounded in truth-telling, movement, dialogues, workshops, and musical performances.
LIBERATION THROUGH CAPOEIRA
In this introductory workshop participants will learn the basic movements of Capoeira and the rich history of this enduring and dynamic practice. No previous experience is necessary.
GEORGIA ANNE MULDROW, LIVE AT THE WORLD STAGE
In recognition of the vast and infinite power of music, we are excited to present a free evening concert featuring an intimate performance by Los Angeles’ very own, Georgia Anne Muldrow.
THE BLANKET EXERCISE
Join us for an experiential learning opportunity that will introduce the epic historical narrative of the Indigenous people of Turtle Island, now also known as North America, in a unique and evocative way.
RADICAL INTERVENTIONS WITH PLANT MEDICINE
This interactive workshop will revisit our relationships with plants, plant medicine, and ancestral healing practices. We will be making herbal medicine together to support us with stress and anxiety.
