HOW CAN AMERICA HEAL FROM THE DISTURBING CHAPTERS OF OUR RACIAL HISTORY?
Join us to learn how communities around this country are remembering and repairing racial trauma. Our annual Gathering celebrates the legacy of America’s Black Holocaust Museum founder, Dr. James Cameron. In his honor, we bring together people from all corners of Greater Milwaukee for learning and fellowship.
This event is ABHM’s annual fundraiser! All proceeds go to support the development of ABHM’s new building and our public programming throughout the year. THE FD 2017 PROGRAM:
MORNING PROGRAM: OPEN TO GENERAL PUBLIC
See a sneak preview of the new documentary film, ALWAYS IN SEASON, follwed by an audience talback with the filmmaker and cast. The film shows how lynching still impacts Americans and follows the efforts of descendants of victims and perpetrators in four communities who work to acknowledge the victims, repair the damage, and reconcile.
The morning program will be introduced with a short talk by ABHM Head Griot Reggie Jackson about the importance of truth-telling, remembrance, and ABHM’s role as a memorial museum in healing our city and nation.
AFTERNOON PROGRAM: OPEN TO EVENT SPONSORS ONLY
In a luncheon keynote and small dialogue groups, twelve presenters from across the country will share their communities’ strategies for remembering and repairing racial trauma.
