It’s taken several generations for America to resolve some of its complex and interconnected racial scars of the past. And even though our twice-elected black president is set to leave the White House next week, a new set of challenges remain.What will the racial climate look like with our new president? And what will it take to finally acknowledge that there’s still much work to be done in the days ahead?
Joining us today is Dr. Gail. C. Christopher, visionary founder of the National Day of Racial Healing, sponsored by the Kellogg Foundation. She will detail the origins of the day and how it will kick off on January 17, 2017.
The Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation (TRHT) enterprise created by W. K. Kellogg Foundation and a broad coalition of organizations from all sectors of society is working to end the belief and facilitate racial healing. TRHT is a community-driven vehicle for transformative change. The TRHT approach examines how the belief system became embedded in our society, both its culture, and structures, and then works with communities to design and implement effective actions that will permanently uproot it. We are marshaling individual, local, public and private resources to dismantle systemic, structurally-based patterns of discrimination at the municipal, county, state, Tribal and federal levels.
At a recent summit, 570 people representing the 130 TRHT partner organizations issued a call to action to designate January 17, 2017, as the inaugural National Day of Racial Healing in America.
I have written an article to accompany this important day of healing. It can be found at http://bit.ly/2jx9ml3

The Civil War ended in 1865, and now more than 150 years later the battle flag of the Southern states is still at the crossroads in South Carolina, Mississippi, Georgia and elsewhere. From license plates to T-shirts to flags, the "stars and bars" remains a hateful symbol of slavery to the Black community.
With the execution of nine innocent African Americans merely attending Bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina on June 17, 2015, the killer was a 21 year old White supremacist who cherished the Confederate flag.
With racial hatred and gun violence robbing this country of true progress, it’s time to take down the Confederate Flag and park it in a museum where it belongs.
