“A Diverse Celebration of Black History Month”
Who are the African Americans who INSPIRE you the most? We are inviting our “FeelReal” community to join us Thursday 2/18/21 at 6-7:30pm (CT) to listen, learn and most importantly talk about one of your African-American heroes. We so often read about all the black American inventors, scholars, athletes and celebrities we discover during Black History Month, but how often do we get to share our thoughts about the inspiration they gave us?
Our goal is to get a diverse mix of participants to tell us why this person made a difference for you: a little known fact, childhood memories, motivational anecdote. Was it Muhammad Ali, Barack Obama, Tony Morrison, WEB Dubois, Oprah, Stevie Wonder, or even Ernie Banks…whoever it is, we want to hear how they moved you, inspired you – gave you a reason to share your best thoughts about them. What inspired you, could inspire someone else. Please join us and come prepared to share a 2-5 minutes celebration of your most admired African American hero.
An invitation to share sacred space with an ethnically diverse gathering of people committed to working collaboratively, building relationships and communities that will inspire action to eradicate the racist social norms in this country.
NOTE: I can’t afford to be shy about this – If you are white, like me, please join this conversation because the truth is, without white voices and our commitment to action, change won’t come about.
Come ready to share lived experiences, so we may continue to grow together in our understanding of who we are and strengthen our commitment to equality.
Come ready to be uncomfortable and vulnerable.
Come ready to be heard, valued, and responded to with love.
Come ready to be inspired to consider what challenges you in creating action that moves us all forward…
and then step by step, take action.
We are all needed to create the world we want to live in.
We meet every third Thursday. Join as you are able.
