How can Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) inform strategies to address the increasing normalization of hate within our communities? Attend this webinar on Tuesday, Feb. 18, 12-1:30pm in Library 114 to find out more.  Given the power of the internet and social media for spreading white supremacist thought, Jessie Daniels, the author of Cyber Racism, will share strategies for countering the spread of racist ideology. Panelists from three TRHT Campus Centers—Jermaine Pearson (Brown University), Charmaine DM Royal (Duke University), and J. Goosby Smith (The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina)—will also discuss how the TRHT Framework can bring about radical change, through storytelling, active listening, and community-engaged work. There will be time for Q & A during the webinar and there will be a facilitated discussion afterwards. This webinar is co-sponsored by Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
